That's when all Canadians are required to give each other empty boxes.

Makes no sense at all.

The Canadian equivalent of Black Friday.

Off to the mall.

It when you put all thrle crap your relatives gave you back in boxes and take it back to the store.

Damn.

The day doesn't mean anything to me, but I seem to remember the jokes people made about this like it was a few months ago!

It's the official day of recovery.

It's the day you settle all the scores incurred at Xmas dinner because you or your intended were too drunk to duke it out last night?

For many decades, it's been the day I do my big turkey supper. My kids were never interested in a big, fancy meal on Christmas day, so it made more sense to hold off for a day. I still do it that way. It's more relaxing.

First rule of Boxing Day is you don't talk about Boxing Day.

I didn't care about Boxing day until I met the top Admiral of the Canadian Navy for Boxing day 1944. Last year a man of about 90 skipped down the hall to retrieve a picture of him wearing swapped uniforms with the real Admiral. Harold was 17 and by being the youngest sailor present got the top honor of the day. All these years later, laughs like a boy at the chance to tell the story to a new person. It may not matter to most people, but it matters to those who practice Boxing day.

No war stories since he was stationed a Canadian aircraft carrier used for training US pilots on landings and take-offs.

Here in Nova Scotia, Boxing Day is a paid holiday, unlike most other parts of Canada where they have Boxing Day sales, as mentioned above. Because retailers generally market to all of Canada, however, we sort of get to partake in Boxing Day sales as well, but they actually occur a day after on Dec. 27.

Except now that nearly all the Canadian retailers are American-owned, we ALSO get Black Fridays! Farking imperialists...

"It's just another day off to watch sporting events and get drunk, when the women go out and go shopping,"

Now that's something we can ALL get behind.

I don't know if they're comparable. You all seem too polite to trample each other.

Nope, you just seem like the type who could use a good cockpunch occasionally.

The official dog of Boxing Day is the boxer. In fact, they have a parade of boxers wearing boxers(the underwear) and boxes while the dogs box with each other.

/ BEST BOXING DAY EVAH, EH?

// nothing in the previous statement was intended to be factual in any way, shape or form.

As far as I know, its a well known day among commonwealth countries (countries that used to be under British colony). And its a big day for sport as well (specially for Cricket).

When I was a kid it was when we got to spend a lot of time playing with the Rock'em Sock'em Robots we got for Christmas after all the extended family left.

Boxing Day in Yorkshire is traditionally when everyone in the family, from grandpa to baby, wears nothing but a cricket box, and sit silently in the living room watching The Goonies, while casting secret glances at your relatives' crotches.

Pretty sure Easter is considered the biggest Christian holiday.
