Boxing Day is Tuesday, December 26th: Do you celebrate "Boxing Day"?

BOXING_DAYBoxing Day is fast approaching. Some might already have theirs packed and ready for the big day. I know that all the year’s before this year I thought Boxing Day was just about the sport “Boxing”.

When I was visiting my daughter’s first grade class this week they were traveling around the world and her homeroom feature was England. Her teacher mentioned how England has been a huge part of our current Christmas’ with Green, Red and White. Plus how Christmas cards came about. Then she mentioned about Boxing Day and what it really means. Have to say that is wonderful to hear. When it’s Christmas – I always love the opportunity to thank others and we had our kiddos take a small gift to their teachers to enjoy this holiday season as a small appreciation for what they do each school day.

Just in case you are still unsure what Boxing Day really is – here’s the wikipedia.org definition:

Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts from their bossesor employers, known as a “Christmas box”. Today, Boxing Day is better known as a bank or public holiday that occurs on 26 December, or the first or second weekday after Christmas Day, depending on national or regional laws. It is observed in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and some other Commonwealth nations.

In South Africa, Boxing Day was renamed to Day of Goodwill in 1994. In Ireland, the day is known as St. Stephen’s Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Stiofáin) or the Day of the Wren (Irish: Lá an Dreoilín). In many European countries, including notably Germany, Poland, Scandinavia and the Netherlands, 26 December is celebrated as the Second Christmas Day.

In Australia, Boxing Day takes place on 26 December and is a federal public holiday.

So what will you do for Boxing Day? Will you celebrate? Who will you thank?

I know this holiday season I’m so thankful for everyone that has been there for my family and I, as well as everyone we’ve been able to help and touch their hearts as well.

I’ve been especially thankful for finding Lovable Labels a few years ago thanks to a client that is a current customer. I didn’t want to “mark” my children’s clothing with their name or initials using a sharpie. One thing I quickly learned as a mom of 2 – they grow out of their clothes quickly – so by the time that happens, I’d like to have some resell value in the clothes. I always felt when I saw clothes marked with initials that it devalued each item. Lovable Labels is that answer – I can put my kid’s name on anything even her new ipad so everyone knows it’s hers and if I need to remove the label I know I can. You definitely can’t reuse the labels when you try to take them off – but I like that feature because they stick very well. They can even stay on the clothes through the washer and dryer.
