What is Boxing Day
Boxing Day is a holiday that is traditionally celebrated in the United Kingdom and some other countries on the day after Christmas Day, which is December 26. It is a public holiday in many countries and is also known as St. Stephen’s Day in some places.
The origins of Boxing Day are not clear, but it is believed to have originated in the United Kingdom in the Middle Ages. One theory is that it was a day when the wealthy would give boxes filled with gifts or money to their servants and tradespeople. Another theory is that it was a day when churches would open their alms boxes, which were used to collect donations for the poor, and distribute the contents to those in need.
In modern times, Boxing Day is primarily a day for rest and relaxation after the busy holiday season. It is also a day when people often visit family and friends, or participate in sporting events and other activities. In some countries, it is a day when sales and other promotions are held in stores.
