“Boxing Day” in Canada.” ~ Doc Meek

It began looking a lot like Boxing Day early Monday, one one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

“Boxing Day” in Canada has nothing to do with the “fight game.” It refers to the day after Christmas Day, when hordes of shoppers go hunting for post-Christmas bargains, and to exchange Christmas gifts that need exchanging.

One lady said to me, “It’s like ‘hand-to-hand combat’ in some stores, so I just stay home on Boxing Day!”

For me? I curl up with a good book, like best-seller “Lost December” by Richard Paul Evans, or “Potevka’s Gifts” by Mike Ramsdell (author of best-seller “A Train to Potevka”).

Whether you go out to engage in “hand to hand combat” in some stores, or stay in to curl up with a good book, my best to you this Christmas Season.
