What is the origin of the birthday present?
The history of the anniversary celebration
It is assumed that the origins of the birth anniversary celebration are rooted in the Persian and Greek periods. At that time, it was the kings, gods and spirits who were celebrated throughout the calendar of the year. However, we also see the beginning of the birthday cake and its candles, all associated with the citizen's date of birth, even if it is a God who will be celebrated that day.
Thereafter, the Romans, inheriting the rituals of a Hindu faith, Mithra, created a great ceremony dedicated to the birth of a citizen. Gifts and other presents quickly became part of the ensuing traditions.
Later on, Christians will associate this ceremony with paganism and reject it for a few centuries. However, it will continue to exist on the anniversary of the saint whose name is given, which will be celebrated each year. During the century of Enlightenment, Protestants will bring the birthday celebrations back into fashion. And today, our way of celebrating this event is the mixture of all these stories.
Large variations in time
As we look back through our history, we will see that the anniversary has never completely disappeared. Its definition has often changed, from the celebration of deities to the celebration of Christian saints, to the celebration of children, and finally to all of us. There were dark times when this practice was banished, considered pagan and condemned. Today, the anniversary is implanted in every one of our lives with such evidence that we would never suspect that it could fade away again.
Why would you give someone a present?
Gifts through the ages
The history of birthdays is made up of little bits of history, fragments of traditions that have been clustered around the date of a person's birth. The candles date back to the Romans, the round cakes to the Greeks, the song to the English and the birthday of normal individuals to the Protestant reform. But where did the gift come from? Why offer one on this special day? This is also a whole new story. The origins of birthday gifts
The origin of the birthday gift
Originally, thousands of years ago, the birthday present was not received by the celebrant, but rather offered by the child to his or her parents to honour them for giving her life. The first civilizations that entered into temporality (the consciousness of the passing of time) shared this first tradition wherever they were.
Then the gifts became offerings, or sometimes sacrifices, made this time to the Gods to bring protection and prosperity to the chosen ones.
The evolution of the birthday gift
In the Middle Ages, these offerings, made this time to the individual, were religious objects, to protect him from demons suspected of waiting in the shadows for the opportunity to attack.
The Germans, who created the common birthday party (Kinderfest) in the 13th century, added a character who spoils good children with presents. Catholics from the rest of Europe filled the Saints with gifts to protect them during their celebration. But the premise of the genuine birthday gift appears in the banquet of the party, full of things that guests had to bring from home.
Eventually the banquets were fully prepared by the host, but the tradition of bringing something in remained. It is then assumed that the birthday present was born from there. Nowadays. As a celebration of the host's birthday, the gift generally shows affection or respect. A birthday gift remains an object intended to honour its recipient, as it is thousands of years ago.
