Where did the name boxing day come from?
oh, wait, because we package up all our unwanted ill-fitting Christmas gifts and return them to the stores the day after Christmas….
It was a good idea?
do I get points? nope.
ok.. well you know what to do
It started a while ago… back in the 19th century.
It is also known as St. Stephen’s Day.
So what is it, and why the boxes?
Well the high class would have their Christmas on the 25th, on the 26th they packaged up food, clothing and other items and brought them to the less fortunate. They were packaged in boxes for easier transportation.
we don’t do that now do we?
We all rush to malls to see if we can get a deal.
I think if we did the other, we may find that “boxing day” would be a special holiday.
I wonder if that is a tradition that could be started again?
I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday, filled with love. I know we are. It has been grand!
