    My Canadian friends tell me that they also observe that day. They use it to go shopping for the best after-Christmas bargains, very similar to our Black Friday.

    In Britain, 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.

    Except this year, our idiot stores decided to do better “Black Friday” deals, then our “Boxing Day” deals. We are not happy. :(

    After seeing videos of Black Friday shoppers – Boxing Day is a more appropriate name!

    The day after Christmas? Why don’t they do their shopping on the day after Thanksgiving like us?

    :-P

    As a Canadian I will confirm this. As a former retail drone I will say it is great incentive to NEVER go out on Boxing Day.

    Actually, it started in England with the rich. The staff got the day after Christmas off and were given the boxes from their employers presents.

    The definitive answer re Boxing Day is as follows. In years past once Christmas day was over the retail stores placed all their displayed stuff back into their boxes and stored them away til next year, thus the name Boxing Day. Of course we have no understanding of this as our ‘after Christmas’ sales will be going on until June or so. Mike the Canuck.

    No, no. Boxing day started as amn English tradition, when the rich put their left-over Christmas meals in boxes for their staff.
