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.
