As a child, I know that I always looked forward to the presents on Christmas morning, but I always wondered why they were placed under the tree. Well in Victorian times gifts actually used to hung on the tree. Gifts were normally smaller and handmade and were light enough to hang off the tree branches, but soon gifts were becoming more and more store bought, meaning they were larger and unable to hang on the tree. Therefore gifts were placed under the tree instead.
