What is Boxing Day?

Boxing Day is celebrated on December 26 by Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, South Africa, and other Commonwealth nations. While there's no definite answer to why Boxing Day is called "Boxing Day," the most popular theory is that because household servants worked on Christmas Day in aristocratic England, landowners would give them "Christmas boxes" filled with gifts and food (as well as a day off to visit family) on the 26th.

Why are there sales on Boxing Day?

Ugh, great question! Boxing Day as a sales-heavy event became popular in the 1980s. It started off as the U.K.'s version of the U.S.'s Black Friday with killer doorbuster deals starting at 5 a.m. And just like Black Friday became a worldwide phenomenon, so has Boxing Day. Countless brands are jumping head-first on the Boxing Day sales hype, and we're all for it.
