"Foremost among American Christmas customs is the giving of gifts. How exciting it is, to see the gaily wrapped packages with bright ribbons and colorful papers, the shiny new toys and bulging stockings by the mantlepiece on Christmas morning! Gift-giving is observed in many countries, but not always on the 25th of December. Some chose December 6th; and others the 12th day after Christmas when the Wise Men came to visit the Christ Child and brought with them gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh."
