Happy Boxing Day!
Growing up in Canada, our holidays were chock-full of British influence; Canada is a jewel in the Commonwealth’s crown, after all. Mom used to tease us that Boxing Day was a day to clean up and box up (a ploy she cleverly used to get us to tidy the house).
As a child, Boxing Day was a full day of fun –a day of sledding & skating with cousins, adults playing cards, with everyone still full from feasting the day before. As we got older Boxing Day brought dances and Curling socials, a time to visit all who’d come home for the Christmas holiday.
Now it’s more commercialized with stores open for gift returns and clearance sale prices.
But for me, it’s still a day to visit and we will be doing just that ~ And with temps approaching 60F here in West MI (not a snowflake in sight) we have the perfect weather to do so!
