Boxing Day is mostly a UK holiday.
It was a day off for servants when they
would receive a Christmas Box from their
Masters and Mistresses and were allowed
to go home for the day to see their families.
It was also a day to watch horse racing
when they could lose their Christmas Box by
betting on the wrong horse!
Nowadays some silly people go swimming in the sea
Fox hunting was also a tradition although now it is
forbidden to chase foxes with packs of dogs
so now the hounds chase artificial trails.
However there is a new Boxing Day sport
It is called "SHOPPING"
when thousands rush and queue for the stores to open
for the chance to buy something they would never have
wanted if it hadn't been reduced!
