Boxing Day is 26th December, the day after Christmas Day and it was the day that "post-men, errand-boys, and servants of various kinds expect to receive a Christmas-box". This is usually a cash gift and nowadays may be given to paper deliverers, milkmen and refuse collecters as a little thank you for turning out every day in all weathers to provide us with essential services. It is a dying tradition however.
Hope you enjoyed the Advent Calendar this year! Remember to leave comments on each day to let people know you have visited too.
