But, did you know, Boxing Day is a British tradition not celebrated throughout the world like in the US? And, did you know the origins of the name? Let me explain:
Its first defined in the 1830s and is defined as the day after Christmas 'in which post-men, errand-boys, and servants of various kinds expect to receive a Christmas-box'.
And a Christmas box being a present, money or left over food as a thank you gift for a year of good service. Those in service were likely working on the Christmas day, for the wealthy, and then would take the next day off to spend with their families. This tradition apparently goes back to the Middle ages!
So, as you go about your Boxing Day perhaps think of what gift you can be to those who serve you. And make sure to get that deal on that TV you wanted too.
