Why is Boxing Day called Boxing Day? 

 

Boxing Day is a national holiday, held on the 26th December in Britain and many Commonwealth countries. But why is it called Boxing Day? No one knows for sure how the name came about, but popular associations with the sport ‘boxing’ and returning unwanted presents in boxes are historically unfounded. The two main compelling ideas are both associated with charity. One is that alms boxes were placed in churches to collect for the poor during Advent and then distributed on the 26th. The other is that aristocrats would recognise the good work of their employees by gifting Christmas boxes on the 26th (as they would have worked on the 25th) containing gifts, money and leftovers. 

 

The Victorians may have given the name to Boxing Day, but the origins and traditions differ throughout history; one thing is for sure, it has certainly adopted a new meaning in the 21st Century. Boxing day is still a national holiday, centred around spending time with extended family and friends who couldn’t be there to receive their Christmas gifts on Christmas day.
