Did you know that it was only in the 21st century where the celebrated public holiday Boxing Day became widely associated with shopping, sporting events and BBQ?

In fact today, it is almost impossible for people not to shop ‘til they drop for Christmas and the days to celebrate Boxing Day! Whatever it may be, from food to clothes to electric scooters, shopping is always the answer to any question, it is even considered therapy!
2. Sports & Bbq
And since Boxing Day is the day after Christmas Day, December 26, which is also St. Stephen’s Day (the patron saint of horses) — it has come to be a day of sporting events including horse races, foxhunting, and rugby. And in line with this, is the feasting of barbecue. This public holiday is not complete without BBQ!
3. Celebrations Before
Boxing Day is a celebration after a celebration! And ever since, it has always been a celebration, but unlike today, it wasn’t as lavish as shopping can be.
Boxing Day before, was derived from a British tradition of charitable giving where employees, servants, tradespeople and the less unfortunate were also given the chance to celebrate the holidays by “unboxing” alms and donations that had been placed in churches. It is on Christmas Day that these collections are made and only the day after that is “unboxed.”
While the name ‘Boxing Day’ has lost its origins to time, many believe it really just originates from charity drives that placed a smile on those who needed it the most.
4. Celebrations Today
Today, Boxing Day, just as mentioned in the beginning, is focused mainly on shopping, sports and BBQ! It is celebrated everywhere in Australia (except South Australia) where they instead celebrate Proclamation Day (a public holiday celebrated on the first weekday after Christmas Day).
5. Sales and Discounts
Awaited on Boxing Day is sales and discounts for a better shopping experience, perhaps because of the belief that Christmas festivities are almost over and clearance sales need to be made to make way for the upcoming year.
