    Boxing Day is a bank or public holiday that occurs on 26 December, or the first or second weekday after Christmas Day, depending on national or regional laws. It is observed in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and in some Commonwealth nations. In South Africa, the public holiday on 26 December is called Day of Goodwill, and in Ireland St Stephen's Day or the Day of the Wren (Irish: Lá an Dreoilín).

    It's just an excuse for another Government Holiday. What's next, nail clipping day, a9s wiping day, or shopping day? This is why we have recessions. The Governments use taxpayer money to support their own and do less for more. It won't be long and their will be 365 day Government Holidays. Get a Government job if you can. You don't need a high school education to get one. To call in sick you will speak to a Government representative in India or the Filapines.

    Boxing Day in Canada is the same as Black Friday in USA. That's when shopers flood stores to get the best deals for Christmas.
