Well, as I’m quite late in sending Christmas wishes/messages to my friend, I was learned that there is such Day call “Boxing Day” for the very first time in my life! Of course thanks to my friend – Eddy Ow for sharing the information, as well as Wikipedia that make me confident that this day have many UNKNOWN origins/history, I myself view it in different perspective and have some thoughts.
Long time ago in western countries, well people used to donate unused items to the needed people, especially during Christmas. Despite the amount of received donation in gift had increased, somehow these people named the second day of Christmas as “Boxing Day” specially to recognized the donation efforts when they open up the Christmas Box and the gift somehow change their life.
Nowadays, these meaningful days becomes celebration align with businessman momentom until we treat year end, especially the period from Christmas to last day of the year as Stock Clearance Sales.
I’m certainly hope we can always remembered the true meaning of certain celebration but didn’t go too commercial celebration until our next generation really lost track the history.
*writing above is truly my opinions and I shall appreciate anyone who can give me feedback or more information 🙂
