Note, the Boxing Day has nothing to do with the sport of boxing.
What is the first thing people do after Christmas? Travel ,rest or keep partying? No, neither.
After Christmas, the first thing that people who have received many presents do is of course to open the presents, so literally, the day when people open their presents, December 26, is called Boxing Day.
Traditional Boxing Day
However, got its name when Queen Victoria was on the throne in the 1800s, the Boxing Day was traditionally originated a day off for servants or a day to give gifts to the poor.
On this day, servants get permission from the master to have a day off, and they also get a special small Christmas gift from the master. In the meantime, servants would go home this day to give their families Christmas boxes. On the streets, the rich would also give Christmas presents to the poor and the homeless. This is where Boxing Day came from.
Modern Boxing Day
Different from the past, the Boxing Day today is more of a shopping day than ever before.
On this day, supermarkets, malls and brands offer discounts again, the discounts of boxing day deals this day are comparable with Christmas. In addition to opening boxes, people shop for the upcoming New Year’s Eve.
Originated in the United Kingdom, it is widely celebrated in Europe and a number of countries that previously formed part of the British Empire. So until now, you can still find many European and American countries celebrating this shopping festival.
In some countries, such as Germany, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia, 26 December is even celebrated as a second Christmas Day.
