    Boxing Day is not a day to put kittens in a box. (If they go there of their own free will, that's a different story.)

    Boxing Day is not a day to watch Cameron Diaz and James Marsden in 2009's The Box.

     

    According to Wikipedia, the definitive source for everything, "Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts from their superiors or 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."

    So there you have it! What are you giving your servants and tradesmen this year?
