Happy Boxing Day

I wanted to wish all my fellow Canadians a happy Boxing Day. The origins of the holiday are much disputed. The reason I grew up with – Boxing Day being the day after Christmas when all the boxes from holiday gifts were deposited by the side of the road for pickup – did not even make the Wikipedia definition. Today the day is a maddening one for shopping and returning unwanted gifts and, best of all, it is a much needed day off for Canadians. We are jealous this side of the border.
