Gift Giving

We are now in the holiday season when gift giving is in vogue. People have been giving gifts since the beginning of civilization and even earlier. Gifts can be given by the giver to show respect for the receiver. In an ancient Sumerian story, "The Death of Urnamma", the King who has died gives gifts to the gods of the Underworld to appease them and make his future more pleasant. The concept of giving a gift as a show of love has been popular since ancient times. In the story of "Faust", Faust seduces Margarita by giving her jewels. Giving gifts can be an expression of friendship. Gifts can be given for philanthropy. Gift giving can raise the status of the gift giver in some cultures. Giving gifts can sometimes be done simply because it is expected.
