The year ahead

By Mary Friedel-Hunt

The day after Christmas in England is called Boxing Day. It originated when servants and trades people would receive gifts from their superiors or employers, known as a “Christmas box”. Today, Boxing Day is better known as a bank or public holiday and is similar to the day after Thanksgiving here in the United States as people shop for bargains. That is also what happens here, of course, as people head to the malls to return and exchange gifts and get bargains Dec. 26.
