Traditionally the day after Christmas in the UK: Boxing Day

It is believed that the tradition of Boxing Day actually started in the UK. It is not a boxing day where to fighters fight each other. The boxing in Boxing Day is actual Christmas Gift boxes being referred to. In the UK Christmas presents were usually wrapped into boxes. On the day after Christmas these boxes would be put outside.

When the cleaners came usually less fortunate than those who did give Christmas Gifts the more fortunate will give them money for clearing the Boxes on Christmas day. This will also have been a giving of thanks for the cleaning the cleaners did the whole year preceding Boxing Day. To this day this tradition is still alive in many countries celebrating Boxing Day.
