Recommended Posts

Thought I might ask but what is the story behind boxing day? I heard its a day where shops that took out their Christmas products begin to box them up

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.
