    Happy Boxing Day!

    Happy Boxing Day!



    Boxing Day is a bank or public holiday that occurs on 26 December, or the first or second weekday after Christmas Day, depending on national laws. It is observed in Australia, Austria, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and in some Commonwealth nations that have a mainly Christian population. In South Africa, the public holiday 26 December is called Day of Goodwill, in Ireland St Stephen's Day or Lá an Dreoilín, and in continental European countries the "Second Christmas Day."
    In Canada, Boxing Day is listed in the Canada Labour Code as an optional holiday. Only the province of Ontario has made it a statutory holiday where all workers receive time off with pay.[1]

    And it's called Boxing day because Alms Boxes were in Churches for the Christmas period for people to put money (or food and gifts) into, and these boxes were opened on Boxing day and the contents given to the poor of the parish.
