In many parts of the world, the day after Christmas brings with it a unique celebration known as Boxing Day. And no, it’s not about gloves and punches, but about unwrapping layers of tradition and joy.

The origins of Boxing Day are a blend of history and giving. Dating back centuries, this day was when servants and tradespeople received gifts or “boxes” from their employers as a gesture of appreciation for their hard work throughout the year. It was a time to share kindness and acknowledge the efforts of those who supported households and businesses.

Today, while the tradition of giving boxes might have evolved, the spirit remains unchanged. It’s a day to extend generosity, not just through material gifts, but through acts of kindness and thoughtfulness towards others.
