They have started online already and most on the high street start on Boxing Day.

No shopping for me.

Although if i find a pair of brown boots and a long cardigan i might be tempted!

Boxing day? what's that?!

ETA: oh nevermind, I just looked it up.. thank goodness, I thought I've been under a rock not celebrating this day - but it doesn't exist in the US.

She is from the states, and we don't have boxing day here.

Boxing day, Carol, is like Canada's Black Friday, but it happens the day after Christmas instead of the day after Thanksgiving.

I just presumed it was a universal thing, but thanks to Wikipedia i see it's not.

It's originally a British name for the 26th December. Also used by Canada and other commonwealth countries.

It's a public holiday, called Boxing Day for some historic reason. Shops here use it as the day to start their sales.

Short history lesson:

Boxing Day is also known as St. Stephen's Day - historically those of equal social status would exchange gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, and give those of lower social status items on the 26th.

Hmmm, just read that on Wikipedia myself! It's always just been a day to eat nice food and drink for me.

I have family stuff... I don't want anything to do with a mall on Boxing Day! I'll do all my shopping the week after, when the sales are still on but the malls are less packed so that I don't punch someone.

alas...no shopping for me I'll be spending the day driving up to charlevoix to stand up in a wedding! probably a good thing though, considering that relative financial independence this year = less money to spend...

LOL - Wikipedia has helped me out soooo many times.

I don't know anybody who gives out presents on Boxing Day. I think that stopped a long time ago.

For the crazy people who have the energy to fight through the masses and queue from 3 in the morning, it's a shopping day!

For others, who would rather tear off their eyelids and stare at the sun than face this torture, it is mainly another eating and drinking and not having to work day!

I go with the latter because there is nothing i detest more than searching through rails of crap looking for a bargain!
