Boxing Day

How did it originate?  It was a day off for the servants as they had to work Christmas Day they would receive a box of gifts on the 26th to take to their families.

It is the Feast of St Stephen.

Church Boxes were from Christmas were opened on Boxing Day.

Many of us know Boxing Day as a Public Bank Holiday, Boxing Day Test Cricket or Boxing Day sales.  Its also a great day to crash after Christmas from eating too much!
