Originally, Boxing Day – the first weekday after Christmas Day – was observed as a holiday “on which postmen, errand boys, and servants of various kinds received a Christmas box of contributions from those whom they serve” – Charles Dickens

Boxing Day began in England, in the middle of the nineteenth century, under Queen Victoria. Boxing Day, was a way for the upper class to give gifts of cash, or other goods, to those of the lower classes.

Boxing Day is celebrated in Great Britain and in most areas settled by the English (the U.S. is the major exception), including Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Wherever you are, however you celebrate, may your hands be warm, your belly be full, and your heart be wrapped with love.
