A day you box with your enemy without any weapon. It’s legalized.

Boxing Day got its name when Queen Victoria was on the throne in the 1800s and has nothing to do with the sport of boxing.

The name comes from a time when the rich used to box up gifts to give to the poor.

Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants, and the day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters.

The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families.

Boxing day is generally regarded as the day after Christmas when gifts (christmas boxes) are given out or unboxed.
Its origin can be traced to the UK and it's not difficult to see why. The culture of giving is ingrained in them, gifts don't have to be very costly, its just a sign of care. The cheekiest gift I received this Christmas was some carefully wrapped candies from a kid. It costs less than £1 but to me, the thoughts cost more than £1000.

We all need to show love to each other, reach out and buy a N100 gift for someone, give them a feeling of being loved. That's what the yuletide is all about.

It's a day of charity. I'm my teen days I had imagined it to be a day legally set aside for one to iron out one's differences in violent fists with an antagonist.

It's not boxing as in physical exercise. It's a day set aside for all else who didn't have to celebrate the Christmas. It's a sort of alms raising for the underprivileged. Not boxing as in the physical aspect. grin

Boxing day is a day where you practice your boxing skills as it is not really right for anyone not to box in a year.
