Happy Boxing Day!

By December 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Boxing Day, also known as St. Stephen's Day, began in Victorian England in the middle of the nineteenth century as a way for the upper class to give gifts to members of the lower classes. People spend the day visiting friends and family, participating in outdoor activities and looking for post-Christmas bargains at the malls. Today, Boxing Day is celebrated in Australia, Britain, New Zealand, and Canada.

On the Isle of Man, Ireland and Wales, December 26 is known as Wren's Day where people dress up and parade through the towns and villages in remembrance of an old Druidic festival.

To celebrate, I've put together a Boxing Day Word Search for your puzzling pleasure.
