What is Boxing Day?
In Canada, Boxing Day is a holiday for many Canadians on the day after Christmas, December 26. In modern Canada it is best known for post-Christmas shopping sales and Ice Hockey games. The UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand all recognize the 26th as boxing day. The countries merchants offer big sales similar to Black Friday in the United States. Retail stores open early, offer large discounts, and draw very big crowds.
The holiday originated in England in the 19th century under the rule of Queen Victoria and eventually spread to the colonies. In 1830’s Britain it became customary to celebrate the first week day after Christmas by giving gifts (Christmas Boxes) to service workers. This would be similar to leaving a gift or tip for your mail man during the Holidays.
In Canada, it is a provincial holiday only in Ontario, but banks are generally closed and federally regulated workers have the day off. Many Canadians will be out shopping and many more will be cheering on their Junior Canadian National Hockey team. The International Ice Hockey Federation world junior hockey championships start on Boxing Day.
