Christmas Gift Ideas & Holiday Gifts

Dear Readers Christmas is a time of joy and has been associated with gift giving. It is the ultimate time for giving gifts. How did this trend develop? Why has it been so successful? Is it a gimmick of the mega corporations duping us into purchasing more of their products, perhaps it is and it fills the greedy coffers of the big bellied barons. We will leave aside these wonderings and wanderings, and go back to a time much darker, sinister, and when things were not so colorful.

There was this young boy who used to love books. But, as the story goes, his father got imprisoned, when he was just 12 years of age. He had to leave school, take up lodgings near the prison, and work in a blacking factory to support himself. Even when his father got released, he still had to support himself and indeed had a hard childhood. It so happens, that he grew up to become one of the most famous authors of all time. Although, he was very successful now, he still wanted to better the plight of poor children across his country and the world. It was then that he postponed his original idea of writing a political paper and decided to write a story.

So, he wrote about a rich man who was very miserly and mean. This man was visited by the Ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. We all know the rest of the story. How it changed him to be better. And, dear readers, we believe that this popular tale may have played its part in the gift giving associated with this monumental and immense holiday.

If you have been visited by these same ghosts, and have finally decided to confront them with some really useful gifts, then we are presenting you with our list of top gifts for Christmas.
