My plan a few days ago was to celebrate Christmas by posting an image each day for a week here on my blog. Well, I have survived four days now, so all is good. Think of it as a graphical interlude to my recent efforts of blog silence.
Today is the day to ponder on the meaning of Boxing Day. Boxing Day is a Commonwealth holiday celebrated in the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. It officially falls on December 26th, the day after Christmas, or the first weekday following Christmas if Christmas falls on a weekend. This means that today most of Australia is at home or sports events, instead of back at work.
There are a number of theories about Boxing Day and its origins, but all I can tell you is it’s a traditional day of sorting out presents and tidying the house for our household.
