What does giving gifts at Christmas mean?
People give gifts at Christmas for many reasons. People who love and follow Jesus give gifts to remember the true "Gift" - Jesus. Giving presents also remind us of the gifts the wise men brought to Jesus: gold, frankincense and myrrh. They also give gifts to show their love for their families and friends. Some people tell the story of Santa Claus-a pretend figure whose kindness in giving gifts originates with Saint Nicholas who did, in fact, give gifts to the poor. But Santa Claus has nothing to do with the true meaning of Christmas.

In the original, pagan Christmas-which was not called Christmas, since it was not about Christ--gifts were given. But to Christians, gifts are given at Christmas as an opportunity to show love. Sadly, this season has been taken as a commercial opportunity and many people indulge in materialism and forget the true meaning of Christmas.

God gave his only son Jesus who would give up his life for mankind and save us from our sins. And also because the wise men gave Jesus gifts after his birth. So therefore do we Christians give gifts at Christmas to one another.
