Happy Boxing Day

Today in the UK and other Commonwealth countries, it is Boxing Day.
A national holiday, Boxing Day is celebrated the day after Christmas. Many spend the day shopping or attending sporting events. I've read this day originated many centuries ago when servants of the wealthy spent Christmas Day looking after their wealthy masters. Servants were then allowed the next day off to be with family.  Most were given a Christmas box, which would equal a Christmas present here in America.

On Christmas Day, Queen Elizabeth delivered her annual speech. So full of wisdom, she didn't disappoint. So eloquently spoken.
