Christmas food hampers: the gift of tradition
There are just a few weeks to go until the big day and we’re all busy with our Christmas shopping. And while finding the “perfect gift” might not be an exact science and making everybody happy is virtually impossible, Christmas food hampers have certainly become a firm favorite over the years.
The tradition behind Christmas food hampers
Would you believe us if we told you that the first “Christmas” hampers date back to before the birth of Jesus, and therefore before Christmas even existed? Well, they do! The Ancient Romans used to exchange baskets of bay and food to mark Saturnalia, the celebration of the Winter Solstice, which was the pagan forbearer of the modern Christian festival.
