Do you know - Boxing Day

The exact origins of Boxing Day are somewhat unclear and there are several theories about its origin. One theory is that the day was named after the custom of giving gifts to the poor, which was traditionally done the day after Christmas. This practice was known as “boxing” the gifts, as the gifts were often placed in boxes or alms boxes that were placed in churches for the purpose of collecting donations for the poor.

Another theory is that Boxing Day was originally a holiday for servants and tradespeople, who would receive a “Christmas box” from their employers on the day after Christmas. These boxes would typically contain gifts, money, and other treats, and were given as a way of thanking the servants and tradespeople for their hard work throughout the year.
