Boxing Day

What is the origin of boxing day'?

December 26 is called Boxing Day in England and other countries in the Commonwealth, but it is unknown exactly when it first began.

Boxing Day seems to have originated in the mid nineteenth century in England. Some historians believe the name 'Boxing Day' came about because the boxes placed in churches where parishioners deposited alms (coins) for the poor and needy were opened, and the contents were distributed on December 26, which is also the Feast of St Stephen. (St Stephen was the first Christian martyr.)

Others believe that the Boxing Day tradition originated as a holiday for members of the upper class to give boxes containing food, clothing or money to tradespeople and servants, in much the same way that many employers offer their employees bonuses today. These gifts were usually given in boxes; hence the name 'Boxing Day".

Oxford English Dictionary says this comes from the Christmas box; the verb box meaning: To give a Christmas-box, and then leading to the term boxing-day.

An extension of the above theory is that when Christmas holidays were much shorter than they are today certain services often only had Christmas Day as a holiday and returned to work the day after. These included services such as the mail, newspaper or milk delivery. Householders would give them a Christmas gift or, as it was commonly called, a Christmas box on this day to thank them for their service throughout the year.

The common theme, however, is that Boxing Day has absolutely nothing to do with the sport of boxing.

Likewise, it does not gain its name from the overpowering need to rid the house of an excess of wrappings and mountains of now useless cardboard boxes the day after St Nick arrived to turn a perfectly charming and orderly home into a maelstrom of discarded tissue paper.

The name also has nothing to do with returning unwanted gifts to the stores they came from, despite its common association with hauling about boxes on the day after Christmas.
as after Christmas families had extra food left over so they would put it into boxes and bring it around to their neighbours
It was custom for tradesmen to collect boxes of gifts for charities and homeless. Now its just a holiday boxing day dates back to around 400 A.D. but its true origin remains a mystery.

How do you find what day of the week a holiday fell on from a prior year?

If you know what day the holiday is on, you can go to that calendar thing on the lower right hand corner of your computer and double click and it will tell you after you press the right buttons to get to that year and day. That is all I can tell you.

If the holiday always falls on the same calendar day each year (Christmas, New Years, Valentine's Day etc.) then the day of the week moves forward one day for each year. Unless there is a leap year...then holidays that fall after Feb.29th move two weekdays in that year.

So...if Christmas is on a Wednesday this year then it was on a Tuesday last year unless this year is a leap year and then it was on a Monday.

I'm sure you could work out some sort of formula fairly easily enough...but I've got better things to do.

Checking a calendar works too...

Certain holidays are set to fall on a certain day of the year. Examples include: Memorial Day is the last Monday in May, Labor Day is the first Monday in September, Thanksgiving Day in the US, originally the last Thursday in November, was altered slightly in the 1930s and now falls on the fourth Thursday in that month. So if the holiday you're wondering about is that kind of holiday, then, well, there you go :-)
