Chanukah Gifts

While gift giving for Chanukah originates with giving Chanukah Gelt, over time this tradition has grown to include giving other gifts as well. In many families smaller gifts or Gelt are given earlier in the eight days, and then increased as the days progress. The increase in gift giving around Chanukah is also often associated more with the popularity of gift giving for Christmas rather than tradition in Judaism.
