Right now, Christmas is all the rage on HubPages.com. Hubbers are sharing entertaining and decorating advice, complaining about rampant consumerism, delving into religious holidays that crop up around the end of the year, and writing lots and lots of gift guides. But why?
Why do we give gifts on holidays? For how long have we been exchanging presents, and how did our current traditions emerge? We delve into this very subject in this week’s Weekly Advice from Everyday Experts- a look at the history of Gift Giving on Holidays.
In this podcast, we touch on a bunch of different Hubs, including:
- Gift Giving- Gift Ideas and Traditions of Giving by RMCrayne
- Traditional Christmas by SSMarketing
- Understanding Hanukkah – For Non-Jews by Temirah
- Gift Giving in Japan – Japanese People and Their Gift Giving Customs by vaguesan
Mother’s Day Gift Giving: A History by flower_delivery
So be sure to stop by those neat guides, histories, and articles for more information!
We hope that you are at peace with whatever gift giving practice you have developed over the years, and hope that you find the history of holiday gift exchanges as fascinating as we do! If you have any suggestions for future podcasts, or would like to tell us about the best gift you have ever received, send us an email at podcast-at-HubPages-dot-com.
