Chapter Twenty - History/Internet Research Activity

Hagrid tells his tale about visiting the giants and bringing a series of presents to their leader. Research the custom of gift-giving for a particular holiday or occasion. You could write about Birthdays, weddings, Hannukah, Christmas, or any other time when you or your family gives gifts. Find a little bit about the history of that holiday and why people traditionally give gifts on that day. If you have trouble finding information, focus on your own family history and ask your parents and grandparents about the tradition of gift-giving in your family.
