A long time ago, the Romans had a big festival called Saturnalia for their god of farming, Saturn, and they gave each other presents for good luck.

And you’ve probably heard of Saint Nicholas, a kind man from a long time ago who loved to give gifts to those who needed them. Over time, stories of his kindness helped create the Santa Claus we know today, who climbs down the chimney to leave presents.

So when you give someone a present, it’s like you’re part of a very old tradition that makes people feel warm and happy inside!
