Christmas Gifts

Christmas spirit is all about caring and sharing with your loved ones. And what best way to express these feelings than gifts. Christmas, in many ways is the season to give gifts to the loved ones. And the tradition traces back to the birth of Christ.

In the legend, the Magi from the East came along with gifts to see and get blessing from the newborn king. These three men bring gold, incense and myrrh as gifts for baby Jesus. The gift of gold symbolizes Jesus as the King of kings. 

Incense is also a unique gift. In the Exodus 30:34-38 God told Moses that incense was only to be offered on the brazen alter in front of the Holy of Holies and on the Day of Atonement.

Similar to the incense, myrrh is a burial ointment and it has cleansing qualities. The gifts the magi brought to Jesus foretold about Godís plan. They symbolize faith, hope and love all in the name of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The gifts of today too, wrapped with flashy colored papers, bring along with them love and wishes from friends and family. Some of the common gifts of the season are porcelain birds, porcelain blossoms, brass menagerie, porcelain elephant, dolls and toys, jewelries and many more gifts of personal choice.
