On December 26th, the day after Christmas, we went over to some friends' house for a "Boxing Day" get together. This was a first for us Idahoans. Many of our friends here at TCIS are from Canada, New Zealand and Australia and "Boxing Day" is a national holiday in those places.
It was interesting to hear what "Boxing Day" was and/or meant to the group of people at the gathering. For some, "Boxing Day" meant the day to return unwanted gifts and a time to get in on after Christmas sales. For others, "Boxing Day" represented a day where unwanted items were "boxed" up and given to the poor.
For us, "Boxing Day" was a chance to get together with friends, share a few laughs and eat some Christmas leftovers. Oh,....and also, Dina made a new friend on Boxing Day.
