    The anniversary when English political opponents got so mad at each other that they brought their dukes up. They had such a row before the officials could drag them apart that it got slathered over national news. People thought it so significant–because it was the catalyst of other political stuff– that they made the day a holiday.

    Either that, or it’s a day that everyone worships boxer dogs, wears boxers instead of briefs, and lives out of boxes for a day.

    In my job, I box up personnel files for a Human Resources department. Every day is boxing day for me.

    I’ve got the day off and am cosequently checking Tim’s email and messing around on the web. Tim is out back digging some post-holes, having made me breakfast in bed earlier. If he doesn’t finish by end of day, I’ll box his ears.

    Tim won’t have any ears after I’m finished with him!

    I always thought it was the day for boxing up the Christmas ornaments, but I’m way off too. Strange thing is, I think it was a Brit that told me that.
