Boxing Day

December 26th, today, boxing day.  Yet i realised today, I didn’t know what the meaning behind ‘boxing day’ was.  A day that I celebrate consistently in the same way every year by drinking, smoking and relaxing without any idea of the meaning behind it. 

 A little research tells me that ‘Boxing day’ dates back to the middle ages when people would give gifts to people who worked for them or those of a ‘lower social standing’.  The term itself ‘boxing day’ has its roots in the concept of a ‘christmas box’ being given in the context previously mentioned.

That being said, enjoy the day, because tomorrow, reality resumes.
