Happy Boxing Day

Happy Boxing Day!

Actually, Boxing Day has nothing to do with the sport of Boxing.  I was never aware of Boxing Day as a celebratory day of the Christmas season until I met Dan.  Dan who is Canadian (actually he has dual citizenship--US/Canadian) is accustomed to celebrating this day as are most Canadians. 

If you are interested in a brief history of Boxing Day, you can check out this article:

I can tell you we don't go fox hunting nor do we go shopping on this day. ( Okay, sometimes I may go shopping on this day after Christmas). We usually just rest and recover from our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day activities or sometimes we go to a movie.  But we do wish our Canadian and British friends Happy Boxing Day whether they are enjoying shopping, fox hunting or watching a soccer match.
