|Did you know?... The term "Christmas Gift" or "Christmas Present" has been traced by
to 1844. The words Christmas Gift were first used in the southern part of
the United States. The words Christmas Presents were first used as a request to
bring a present to the person who said them. For awhile, "Christmas Gift"
was used in the north as a salutation acknowledging the birth of Christ as the
Christmas gift. This was later replaced with "Merry Christmas."
