A Brief History of Christmas from Candy Gift Ideas. One might expect that the origin of Christmas goes back 2000 years to the birth of Christ, but the roots of the holiday are even older. The origin of Christmas may go back as far as 4000 years. The 12 days of Christmas, the bright fires, the yule log, the giving of gifts, carolers who sing while going from house to house, the holiday feasts, and the church processions can all be traced back, some say, to the early Mesopotamians who celebrated a New Years holiday.

The early Christians wanted to keep the birthday of their Christ child a solemn and religious holiday, not one of cheer and merriment like the pagan celebrations. Early Christians were alarmed by the continuing celebration of pagan customs among their converts. At first the Church forbid this kind of celebration, but eventually it was decided that the revelry would be toned down and made into a celebration fit for the Christian Son of God. The Church eventually was successful in taking the merriment, lights, and gifts from the Saturanilia festival and bringing them to the celebration of Christmas. Today, some might argue, we have come full circle with the commercial aspects of the holiday taking priority with many people. At Candy Gift Ideas, though, we have a way of putting simple fun back into Christmas.
