The Basket Of Christmas From The Romans Up To Our Days

Without getting into reflections on consumerism at Christmas that we would give to more than one article, the fact is, that if you lack at home Christmas basket at Christmas, it seems that not enjoying the holidays in the same way, you are missing something. We see how year after year recurs all the paraphernalia that surrounds Christmas basket. Phrases like this year we will not have basket, gives me same, insurance which is worse that that of last year, etc, can be so typical of Christmas as it is not the lottery of Christmas or pay extra. Reminiscences of our ancestors we discover in ourselves when after having hunted a good mammoth wore it home with pride. Both those who had not hunted and the Hunter should have feelings similar to ours. Not had hunted a mixture between the Hunter and envy of the Hunter and hope that tomorrow will be a day better, a mixture of pride by bringing food home and not take the mammoth have on the other hand. All this translated into the 21st century the only thing we must change is the mammoth by the Christmas basket and we note that we have not changed much, right?. Looking for connections throughout history, seems to be that the first track the Romans give it (sure that if someone digs found previous connections, is more, surely would come until the time of Cro-Magnon), when Romulus received of the goddess Strenia fruit tree branches as a sign of good omen for the next 12 months, we observe as the meaning of the present is to give good luck to Romulus to ensure good harvests (maybe needed you)on the other hand here we see that the gift sender and receiver of the same are a goddess and a monarch, not bad-.

The next track that give us moved already to the feudal era in this case both gifts as those who give and receive are more worldly, and we see also as roles of receiver and transmitter can be changed between serfs and Lords (majetes were serfs, or they would force them, I don’t know)-. Finally, going back to our times, already in the twentieth century, we see how gift has taken one character of appreciation and as usually the transmitter is usually a company and the receiver of the Christmas basket is usually the worker. Currently, following the storyline above, we see in recent times as the meaning can be kept as soon as at the end of Christmas basket is a gesture of appreciation, but we see how he is changing something in the content of the basket and also that has expanded the range of who presents her with this present. In terms of content, we see appear baskets better mejor selected with lifetime products, as Iberian hams and loins and new ones are added such as legumes or delicatessen products, tending to disappear fill products such as bottles, polvorones and nougat. IE tends to baskets of less weight and higher quality. Respect of that gift, we see how they have added to the companies, who see in the basket a nice way of showing affection and remember that your beloved people, adding to the latter who see an opportunity to show your appreciation to the receiver of them present in Christmas basket.
