In Canada the day after Christmas is Boxing Day and it is also a holiday. In many ways, Boxing Day was my favorite holiday in December. The hurry and stress was behind, and it was a day for relaxation.
We usually spent a quiet day enjoying books that we have received or purchased for Christmas, eating turkey sandwiches, working on a jig-saw puzzle, and other low key things like that.
Now that we live in our “new” country, Boxing Day is no longer a holiday. I’m thankful that this year the day after Christmas is actually a day off for us so we can continue the Boxing Day tradition this year!
