What exactly is Boxing Day, you ask? Well, we’re so glad you did! We love a good holiday and a reason to celebrate — along with some gift-giving, of course.
Boxing Day is the second day of Christmastide! That’s a word you don’t hear every day, and what a shame that is. In other words, the 26th of December.
The origins of Boxing Day belong to the Victorian era when it was founded as a reason to give gifts to the poor. Remember the Christmas carol, “Good King Wenceslas looked out on the Feast of Stephen?”
Well, crooner Bing was singing about Boxing Day and how it all came about. A holiday that involves gift-giving is a holiday we are here for! Of all the five love languages, we admit to being particularly fond of gift-giving…we can’t help ourselves!
So, when it comes to celebrating Boxing Day — wherever you are, you don’t have to be in the commonwealth countries — we’ve done some preliminary shopping for you. You’re welcome!
