  1. Boxing Day is annually celebrated on December 26th in Canada, the U.K., and most other British Commonwealth countries. Its origin story is up for debate, but it was commonly known that December 26th was a day off for the servants and working class. Wealthy business owners would give their employees and staff Christmas leftovers and other presents. The food and gifts were usually wrapped up in a box, hence where the holiday’s name originated.

    In other histories, Boxing Day was meant to collect donations and distribute charity to the poor. Even though the holiday’s origins are debatable, it is still a widely celebrated day around the world where family, friends, and loved ones gather for another round of holiday joy.
