Happy Boxing Day

Today is Boxing Day in Canada and the United Kingdom, and we think the United States should consider adopting the holiday. The name has nothing to do with pugilism, a sport more suited to Black Friday at Walmart, but rather the tradition of handing out boxes of gifts to postmen and household servants and the clerks of oft-visited stores and the other helpful people one encounters on a regular basis.
Boxing Day seems a nice way to keep the gift-giving Christmas spirit going through another day, and help lubricate the gears of social interaction. Better yet, it’s another reason to take a day from all the news of the world.
Happy Boxing Day to all of our Canadian and British friends, and to the rest of you wish a happy day after Christmas.
