COFFINS AND CASKETS ARE NOT THE SAME THING!

COFFINS AND CASKETS ARE NOT THE SAME THING
Learn what the difference is here.

Coffins and caskets are very alike. They can both be made of either steel or wood, they can both decompose naturally into the soil,

and they are both used to hold our loved ones as we place them into the ground. Although coffins and caskets share many things in common, they are indeed different. Imagine what you think a coffin looks like.

If you imagined a perfectly rectangular box, you thought of a casket! However, if you imagined a rectangular box that extends to the side where the person’s shoulders are, you imagined a coffin!

If being put in a box below the surface of the Earth gives you the creeps, don’t worry, you are not alone. In fact, in 1822 a doctor by the name of Adolf Gutsmuth designed a coffin with a feeding air tube! Just to prove that it worked, he tested himself by being buried and was able have soup, beer, and sausages in his coffin before being dug up again by his assistant!
