I read a bit online about Boxing Day. I guess today can’t be Boxing Day, at least in some times and places, because it’s a Sunday. Mostly I was trying to find out what the boxes were made of, because the ritual began before cardboard. Perhaps the box meant alms boxes at the church, or perhaps the box was what the gifts were put in. I’m betting either way the boxes were some kind of wood, but I didn’t get that confirmed.
