What is Boxing Day?

The tradition began in the 17th century, as employers paid homage to their servants by granting them a gift, which was called a ‘Christmas-box.’ This box contained various items, including bonuses, gifts, and occasionally leftover food. Sounds delicious!

Boxing Day always falls on December 26, the day after Christmas. In the United Kingdom and its former collection of nations, Boxing Day is a secular holiday with no religious roots. However, in European countries such as Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia, this day is celebrated as if it were an extension of Christmas (or the second day of this holiday). Boxing Day also falls on the same date as St. Stephen’s Day in Western Christian tradition, a date set aside to celebrate the first Christian martyr or protomartyr.
