History of Holidays

Holiday Gift Baskets are our specialty and we thought it important that we put together a list of the holidays we build special gift baskets for and the history behind them.

Although we can not guarantee absolute historical accuracy, these are the most widely accepted holiday beginnings. Some are based on recorded historic events while others are rooted firmly in local lore. So kick back and enjoy while you read some of the historical holiday tales.
