If you want to think really basically, Christmastime can be sized down to boxes. Big ones, small ones, wrapped and unwrapped, covered in bows or ribbons or jingle bells. Some contain things you’ve wanted all your life, or just since the fall catalog came out. Some boxes will go unopened and be recycled for next year’s gift exchange. Some may hold engagement rings, a promise of a new future nestled into a tiny box. If you want to be really creative, you can say Jesus was born in a box, and three wise men brought him boxes filled with gold and frankincense and myrrh.
