Thanks to spending several years in the UK, I celebrate Boxing Day. It’s a day to hang out with family and friends, watch sports (Portsmouth vs Arsenal, the team my brother supports, is about to start), and play with your new stuff. I have the new Joni Mitchell CD to play with.
No one really knows the origin of Boxing Day, but there are theories.
