What is this holiday about?
It's all about making a gift instead of buying a gift!
Many people would much rather recieve a homemade gift than a bought gift. When a person takes the time to make a gift, they put their heart and soul into that gift, therefore the gift becomes more meaningful. This holiday is a great holiday to promote the idea of making gifts and remind everyone to find those crafty and artistic abilities that we have and make a gift for someone.
Origin of this Holiday
I bet the month of December was picked to celebrate this holiday because the month of December is the giving season, the holiday season where more gifts are given during this month than any other time of the year. Why was the 3th day picked?? That's the question. But unfortunately...
our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So have fun with it and celebrate it!

Definition of a gift
A gift or present is the transfer of something, without the need for compensation that is involved in trade. A gift is a voluntary act which does not require anything in return. Even though it involves possibly a social expectation of reciprocity, or a return in the form of prestige or power, a gift is meant to be free.
