Simple box with lid and containing stones of places of significance in the history of Christ

One of the oldest objects in the show, on loan from the Vatican Museums, is a wooden "Reliquary Box with Stones from the Holy Land," dating from the 6th century and thought to have originated in Syria or Palestine. It holds small stones and pieces of wood gathered by a pilgrim to the Holy Land reminiscent of what a traveler might do today. The sites visited are attested to by five paintings on its cover representing important events in the life of Christ: his birth, baptism, crucifixion, the women at his empty tomb, and his ascension.

its nothing new to understand religions have adopted traditions & days as their own..
just look at the pope.. the queen.. they have collected at the symbols of power & reverence for hundreds of years..
the Christmas tree.. is the world tree.. adopted by Christians.. simple as that.
the star, the three stars of Orion... and the earths orbit around the southern cross, the milky way snakes around your Xmas tree.. you puts bulbs on it just like shamans did on the trees to dry out mushrooms.. and reindeer eat these mushrooms. hence.. flying (tripping) reindeer....are all switched into Christianity..
three kings followed a star to find gods sun on the cross who died for three days and was resurrected..
all older traditions than christianity.
all happen every year in the sky Dec 22nd until Xmas day.. when the star, Orion's belt align to let us know where to expect the sun rising on Christmas day.. signalling winters peak & a return to warmer summer weather..
