Boxing Day Details

Here in the US we don’t celebrate Boxing Day, although we hear bits and pieces about this funny little day around the holidays each year.

Boxing day has a long history. It used to be a day when wealthy people in the UK would give a box with a gift to their servants. Nowadays, it is a public holiday landing on December 26 (or the first or second weekday after Christmas). Countries observing boxing day include the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
