It is almost unbelievable that another year is nearly gone.  January 11th will make our three-year anniversary of moving to Florida.  I was thinking about our friends from Canada, they were the first ones I ever heard of that actually celebrated Boxing Day. At that point in my life I had never heard of it.
Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated on the day after Christmas.  Although some banks and public holidays celebrate it on the second day after Christmas, most choose December 26th to celebrate it.  It originated in the United Kingdom, and is celebrated by many countries that previously formed part of the British Empire.  
In some European countries such as Hungary, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia, December 26th is celebrated as a second Christmas day.  Wow, no thank you, one Christmas Day is plenty for me. 
Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a Christmas box from the master.  The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families.  
Boxing Day has a lot of traditions, like a reference to charity drives.  Boxes were placed in churches to collect money for the poor, and they were opened the day after Christmas and dispersed.  There was a nautical tradition where sailing vessels would have a sealed box on board containing money for good luck.  If the voyage was a success, the box was given to a priest, opened at Christmas and the contents then given to the poor. 
In Canada, Boxing Day is mainly a day to spend with family and friends to work on the leftovers from Christmas.  I think of over 2,000 years ago when Jesus Christ would have been one day old.  Hard to imagine God in the flesh like that.  That is why we need God-given faith to believe.
God bless you all, RHM
