Boxing DayOrléans Ville English Language Teachers Garden

No Boxing on Boxing Day
In some countries like the UK, Australia and Canada, Boxing day is a holiday.It is the day after Christmas.It has many origins, but here are the two most common meanings:
Around the 1900s in Britain, the day after Christmas was a day that people in the upper class gave money and other gifts to charities, needy individuals, and people in service jobs (postman, cleaners, milkmen, servants). It was a way to thank the community for everything they had done. These gifts or money were put in a small “box” or “Christmas box.”Many families and organizations still keep the original tradition of Boxing Day alive today by donating their time and money to the Food Bank and provide gifts to the poor.
In some other countries, Boxing Day means the day that all your holiday decorations are “boxed up” for next year, which means putting everything into boxes and put away to store. It is also the day that you throw away all the boxes that your Christmas presents came in!
So remember, if anyone ever asks you, Boxing Day is not for Boxing someone!
