Do people in the US (or countries outside of Canada) have Boxing Day?
In Canada, Boxing Day is December 26th when the stores have an after Xmas sale. Do they have the same big event in other countries? It's stretched to pretty much the week after Xmas now, but still a crazy time for shopping and there are good deals too.
We don't have this in the U.S., but they have it in Britain. I might be way off, but I believe it is somehow related to fox hunting (at least in England)?
In America, we have after-Christmas sales, but there is no real push by the retail industry like we have between Black Friday and Christmas.
I know in the UK they do. The US doesn't. I used to live in Wales and had a Welsh boyfriend. I brought him home for xmas one year, and on Boxing Day i went to meet up with my friend, but I didn't bring my boyfriend because he didn't want to go and had the flu as well. My boyfriend became extremely upset with me because for him and his culture, Boxing Day is still a family experience, vs in the US, it's just the day after Christmas.
