Have you ever known why Dec 26 is called " boxing day"
if You happen to know.. pls give me a detail
December 26 is called boxing day.
A box to collect money for the poor was placed in Churches on Christmas day then opened the next day. The money thus collected will be spent for poor people. In England many years ago, it was common practice for the servants to carry boxes to their employers when they arrived for their day's work on the day after Christmas. Their employers would then put coins in the boxes as special end-of-year gifts. The servants carried boxes for the coins, hence the name Boxing Day.
