Happy Boxing Day
Thank you, Perry.
I dunno. I wished a guy "happy Boxing Day" and he took a swing at me !!
Interesting holiday, I've never celebrated it:
Mark, as you may have noticed in the Wikipedia article, it is celebrated in the Netherlands as Second Christmas Day (Tweede Kerstdag). It's perfect for families because it solves the dilemma of "whose family are we spending Christmas with this year?" Easy. Eerste Kerstdag with one, then Tweede Kerstdag with the other.
I think in Canada it has more to do with returning gifts?
Thanks for remembering, Perry. I always thought we were missing out on a great Day (South of the border).
We enjoyed Boxing Day one year in Long Island, Bahamas and it was great. All of our friends of British origin welcome us with "Happy Boxing Day" and then have a great time explaining it.
