History

Boxing day was founded along several lines of thought. One is that the day after Christmas was a day that lords would give leftover tools and clothing to the peasants in a box - thus Boxing Day. Others believe is has to do with the church box where donations where made and the church would distribute the contents to the poor on boxing day.
