Happy Boxing Day, Buddy!

I’m not your buddy, pal!

Boxing Day takes place on December 26th and is only celebrated in a few countries; mainly ones historically connected to the UK (such as Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand) and in some European countries. In Germany it is known as ‘Zweiter Feiertag’ (which means ‘second celebration’) and also ‘Zweiter Weihnachtsfeiertag’.

However, that’s describing the ‘Public (or Bank) Holiday’ for Boxing Day in the UK. I think it’s possible to separate Boxing Day ‘the day’ (the 26th) and ‘the public holiday’.
