What is Boxing Day, anyway? Here are some fun facts about the holiday (sports fans may be let down when I say it has nothing to do with the Main Event day.)
Boxing Day Facts
- It gets its name from ‘Christmas box’, the old British name for a Christmas present.
- The day after Christmas was traditionally when servants had the day off and receive a box from their employer, as well as give boxes to their families.
- While the day each year differs, Boxing Day always falls on December 26th.
- It is celebrated in Commonwealth countries, which is why there is Boxing Day in Canada but not in the USA.
- Black Friday vs. Boxing Day is a common comparison, but Boxing Day Canada began in the late 19th century, while Black Friday, although older in the US, started here in recent years.
- The holiday is still considered the best day to shop if you don’t mind crowds (and if you do, our Boxing Day travel sales are available online!)
