The Day After


Hi Y’all!

This is Boxing Day in Canada!  I thought that meant that people went boxing…but evidently it really means a “day of goodwill”.  Boxing Day is a holiday that happens on the first or second weekday after Christmas.

Besides Canada, it is also celebrated in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.  In Ireland it is known as St Stephens Day, a religious holiday. In 1994 South Africa renamed Boxing Day as the Day of Goodwill.

Evidently it has become another of those mad shopping days that humans enjoy. 

Y’all come back now.
