Day After Christmas * Dec 26

Happy Wednesday! And yes the day after Christmas – back to work unless you are on break .

Are you shopping today for after Christmas bargains? Or are you taking a break from all of it and getting ready for New Year? Drop me a note and let me know!

In some parts of the World it’s Boxing Day!

Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated the day after Christmas Day. It originated in the United Kingdom, and is celebrated in a number of countries that previously formed part of the British Empire.
 It became an official holiday during the reign of Queen Victoria, though some historians trace its origins back much further—to medieval times. Today, it’s largely an extension of the Christmas holiday and a big day for sporting events and shopping.

Traditionally, it was a day when employers distributed money, food, cloth (material) or other valuable goods to their employees. In modern times, it is an important day for sporting events and the start of the post-Christmas sales.

Boxing Day is also an important day for sporting events. Traditionally, fox hunting was a popular sport in the upper class. Pictures of hunters on horseback dressed in red coats and surrounded by hunting dogs are often seen as symbolic of Boxing Day. Nowadays, fox hunting is outlawed. Horse racing and football (soccer) are now popular sports.No boxing involved, Lisa

  1. I am hoping to make a trip to my local yarn shop. It’s not that far from my house, so I won’t have to deal with major traffic or stores full of people with long lines with returns. Then home to relax and enjoy the day ;). I hope your day is a nice relaxing one.
