Originally a United Kingdom and a few other countries holiday. It falls a day after Christmas. Marked by shopping feasts and sports especially football. It’s said to have begun in the 19th century. It was a holiday when the tradespeople, the poor and servants received gifts. Employers gave a day off to their employees and some bonuses and boxes for gifts. The origin of the name is uncertain but It has nothing to do with the boxing sport, probably boxes of gifts or alms boxes churches used to collect donations for the less fortunate. The holiday has since evolved to What It is today.
The economy has changed lately taking a dip with many complaining of how expensive it has been to get by. This year we’ve seen the worst of it. With the pandemic and many losing their jobs and businesses. Many countries people being unable to travel for the season’s celebration due to safety precautions and in some ignoring the fact that covid is real. Really hoping there would be no new pandemic wave coming January, that the economy will be better and a generally better year full of prosperity and recovery.
Having this in mind, what is the best gift to buy? Research shows that buying the best item in a cheaper category is the better choice rather than a substandard in a higher category. Ideally, exchanging gifts is not like exchanging money. It’s the gesture that matters most. It’s difficult to put value on thoughtfulness. I hope you enjoyed your boxing day. Gift as many; friends, family, colleagues and the needy with thoughtfulness, love and kindness. Happy holidays.
