    Umm why is there a Boxing Day? what is the significance?

    • Jules Smith says:

      Uriel- 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.[8] This is mentioned in Samuel Pepys’ diary entry for 19 December 1663.[9] This custom is linked to an older British tradition: since they would have to wait on their masters on Christmas Day, the servants of the wealthy were allowed the next day to visit their families. The employers would give each servant a box to take home containing gifts, bonuses, and sometimes leftover food.

      However, in reality, it’s another day to spend time with relatives you don’t really want to in order to push your tolerance level to breaking point. You go from ‘ The love of Jesus’ to ‘ FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS’ and it usually ends in you force feeding yourself like a Christmas goose in order to numb the pain or getting blind drunk and starting a big fight- hence Boxing Day!
