|Boxing Day comes one day after Catholic Christmas holiday, the Feast of St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, is better known as Boxing Day. Nowadays, we often see, in certain families, gifts (boxes) given to those who provide services throughout the year.
Boxing Day is listed in the Canada Labour Code as a holiday. Boxing Day is celebrated in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. In other countries this holiday exists as well but may be called by different name.
What is common is that in large households, the family may have used this day to distribute Christmas boxes to their staff and perhaps poor families. Many stores have gifts and items on sale and that way through shopping offer their offerings. It is well known shoping day in Canada anyway.
