Happy Boxing Day!

#103625 2 years, 8 months ago
I never can remember what Boxing Day is, but it's always listed on my calendars on December 26th. And since it's there, I'm going to celebrate it by doing nothing but spending all day grazing on Xmas leftovers and watching movies. I'll try to find something filmed in England, to be holiday appropriate. Happy Boxing Day, all!!

In case any of you also forget what this day is about:

Boxing Day is traditionally a day following Christmas when wealthy people and homeowners in the United Kingdom would give a box containing a gift to their servants. It is observed in Great Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and some other Commonwealth nations. In the UK, it was a custom for tradesmen to collect "Christmas boxes" of money or presents on the first weekday after Christmas as thanks for good service throughout the year. This is mentioned in Samuel Pepys' diary entry for 19 December 1663; This custom is linked to an older English tradition: in exchange for ensuring that wealthy landowners' Christmases ran smoothly, their servants were allowed to take the 26th off to visit their families. The employers gave each servant a box containing gifts and bonuses (and sometimes leftover food).

Happy Boxing Day to you also, and everyone everywhere. I just whipped up some vittles for the day. Baked faux chicken and stuffing, squash and cranberries. Made a batch of egg nog and will keep celebrating Christmas on Boxing day. Brilliant!
