Boxing Day: Hunting, Shopping, Silly Activities

Boxing Day is a national holiday observed in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and some other Commonwealth nations. This day will see many people heading out to enjoy some fox hunting (in a modified way) or racing. Others will spend hours and hours shopping in malls and stores searching for the best bargains of the year. Some people will enjoy a bizarre day of traditions such as swimming the icy cold English Channel, going for fun runs, or participating in charity events.

Boxing Day Has a Long History

Historians trace Boxing Day back to the Victorian era. Churches would often put out a box in which church-goers would place donations. This was also a time when servants were given the day off to visit their families. This was offered to them since Christmas Day celebrations often required their services. This was also a day when tradespeople would collect “Christmas boxes” of presents or money. These boxes were offered for good service provided throughout the year.

Boxing Day is somewhat an extension of Christmas Day. It is a day on which families continue their Christmas celebration. By venturing out from their homes they can enjoy varied entertainment such as pantomimes, plays, variety shows, exhibitions, and sporting events including football matches and hunts.
