On the Second Day of Christmas

The origins of Boxing Day is somewhat cloudy.  The best explanation comes from Britain.  It is said that Christmas Day (the First Day of Christmas) was kept very holy a few hundred years ago.

Attending church services for most of the day, then feasting in the evening was the norm.  Presents and gifts were exchanged on the Second Day of Christmas.  That day became known as Boxing Day because the folks carried boxes of goodies and gifts about.  There are other theories out there but I like that one the best!

I hope you all had a great Christmas Day with family and friends.  We certainly did!  I think I'm still digesting that fabulous turkey dinner! 

If you're one of the thousands looking for Boxing Day Bargains, good luck and stay safe.  If you're attending more parties this evening, have fun and stay safe, too!  Here's a special greeting to all those Designated Drivers out there.  Keep up that very important tradition.  We need you!

Merry Christmas!
