Boxing Day..?

Merry Merry people!!
If you want to read about Christmas,
Please go to my brother's blog..

Will really make you think twice about Christmas.. :)

Well, as for me,
I will talk on Boxing Day then..
According to Wiki..

Boxing Day is a bank holiday or a public holiday in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, Greenland, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau, Nigeria and countries in the Commonwealth of Nations with a mainly Christian population. In South Africa this public holiday is now known as the Day of Goodwill. Though it is not an official holiday in the United States, the name "Boxing Day" for the day after Christmas has some currency among Americans, particularly those that live near the Canada – United States border.

The name derives from the tradition of giving seasonal gifts, on the day after Christmas, to less wealthy people and social inferiors, which was later extended to various workpeople such as labourers and servants.

The traditional recorded celebration of Boxing Day has long included giving money and other gifts to charitable institutions, the needy and people in service positions. The European tradition has been dated to the Middle Ages, but the exact origin is unknown and there are some claims that it goes back to the late Roman/early christian era.

Well, this is something about Boxing Day 'lah'..
To read more do go and visit Wiki..or google it up..
I think I knew about this special ( ? O.o ) day last year.. hehe :P

You see,
This month is all about giving and receiving..
But it's better to give than to receive..
Because this means that we're blessed to be able to bless those who are not so blessed ;)
