Boxing Day, Oh Boxing Day.

Tradition: The day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a “Christmas box”, from their bosses or employers.

Modern Day:  Throwing out Recycling present boxes and wrapping paper, nursing hangovers and stomach aches with Turkey and/or Ham Sandwiches, playing games with family, watching the Football, Shopping (if you’re crazy and want to queue for the Sales from 3.30am or face horrendous crowds or enjoy shopping in your PJs at home) and generally feeling sad that Christmas is done for the year. 

Favourite part of Christmas Day? Gathering for Roast Turkey & Beef, Christmas Pud, Pavlova & a lot of laughter.

Favourite memory of the Day? It’s a tough split between Skyping with my Kiwi Family (Dad, Brother & Sister at various points), and toasting the Queen’s Speech with my London Family.

Boxing Day leads to much reminiscing, and planning for the New Year.

We have made so, so many wonderful memories, and started planning many exciting new things for next year. I can’t wait to share them with you.

How was your Christmas? Full of everything you wished?
