Happy Boxing Day

Christmas was a blast this year. We had family in town, two nights of sing-alongs, way too much food, and generally a wonderful time. Now on to skiing for the next few days weather permitting.

Interesting that there is no definitive explanation of “boxing”. Wikipedia calls out that it might reference giving staff a “Christmas box” but then fails to mention other ideas around the etymology.

We really should formally adopt this as a U.S. holiday – we need more holidays.
