Boxing Day is celebrated on December 26 each year. It is primarily a British tradition that has been exported to Australia, Canada and New Zealand and is becoming more and more popular around the world.
The day after Christmas was when servants of the wealthy were given time off to visit their family, as they were needed to work on Christmas Day. Each servant was given a box to take home with food, a bonus and gifts. Another version is that in the Victorian era, churches often displayed a box for parishioners to donate money.
Boxing Day is another day to eat more turkey, have more drinks, and give some more gifts to show your family, friends and colleagues how you appreciate them. May your gifts chosen with care and presented with a pure heart bring lots of pleasant impressions!
