Transcript: BOXING DAY Background and Symbols There are a number of stories behind the origin of the term 'Boxing Day'. It used to be customary for employers to give their employees or servants a gift of money or food in a small box on this day. This is still customary for people who deliver letters or newspapers, although the gift may be given before Christmas Day. In feudal times, the lord of the manor would gather all those who worked on his land together on this day and distribute boxes of practical goods, such as agricultural tools, food and cloth. This was payment for the work that they had done throughout the passed year. Other stories relate to servants being allowed to take a portion of the food left over from the Christmas celebrations in a box to their families and the distribution of alms from the Church collection box to poor parishioners. These traditions have evolved into the Christmas hampers that many large employers distribute, although these are now often distributed in the week before Christmas Public life Boxing Day is a bank holiday. If Boxing Day falls on a Saturday, the following Monday is a bank holiday. If Christmas Day falls on a Saturday, the following Monday and Tuesday are bank holidays. All schools and many organizations are closed in this period. Some may close for the whole week between Christmas and New Year. Many stores are open and now start their post-Christmas sales on Boxing Day. This makes December 26 a very important day for many retailers. Many public transport services run on special timetables What do people do? For many people Boxing Day is a time to recover from the excesses of Christmas day and an opportunity to spent time with family, friends and neighbors. Some people choose to go for a walk in the countryside, while other flock to the post-Christmas sales in large stores that often begin on Boxing Day. Some people even spend part of the night and early morning queuing to get into the stores when the best bargains are still available. Boxing Day is also an important day for sports events. Traditionally, using dogs to hunt for foxes was a popular sport amongst the upper classes. Pictures of hunters on horseback dressed in red coats and surrounded by hunting dogs are often seen as symbolic of Boxing Day. Nowadays, fox hunting is outlawed. Horse racing and football (soccer) are now popular sports. Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated in England and Commonwealth countries (Canada, Australia and New Zealand). It officially falls on December 26th, the day after Christmas, or the first weekday following Christmas if Christmas falls on a weekend. Boxing Day is a day to visit friends and family, attend sporting events (popular in England and Australia) and go shopping.
Transcript: Is Boxing Day about the sport? As far as we know, Boxing Day doesn't have anything to do with the sport of boxing. Although there are many explanations as to the origin of the name, one point that most agree on is that on the day after Christmas, members of the higher class gave gifts to tradespeople, employees, servants or serfs, and others considered socially inferior. The gifts were often packed in a box, which the recipients would collect and cart home with them. Today, Boxing Day in many countries is similar to the US's Black Friday — one of the year's busiest shopping days. PUBLIC HOLIDAY or BANK Holiday 26th of DECEMBER is celebrated as The Second Day of Christmas in most European countries. Commonwealth nations In Ireland, it is recognized as St. Stephen's Day or the Day of the Wren Although the same legislation – the Bank Holidays Act 1871 – originally established the bank holidays throughout the UK, the day after Christmas was defined as Boxing Day in England, Scotland and Wales, and the feast day of St Stephen in Ireland.. A 'substitute bank holiday in place of 26 December' is only possible in Northern Ireland, reflecting the legal difference in that St. Stephen's Day does not automatically shift to the Monday in the same way as Boxing Day. In South Africa, Boxing Day was renamed Day of Goodwill in 1994 In Canada, Boxing Day is listed in the Canada Labour Code as an optional holiday. Only the province of Ontario has made it a statutory holiday where all workers receive time off with pay In Britain, Canada,New Zealand and some states of Australia, Boxing Day is primarily known as a shopping holiday, much like the day after Thanksgiving in the United States.
