The boxes were filled with exotic foods, sweetmeats, wine, expensive tea, gold coins, hairpins, earrings, bracelets, beads, silk, bride's clothing and a whole roasted pig. The bride's family would send back several boxes with some of the cakes sent by the groom's family, while adding food of their own. Parts of the roasted pig would be returned too, including the head and the rear with the legs, to symbolize that everything has a beginning and an end.
