boxing day, a TKO while shopping
Yesterday was Boxing Day in the UK. Some idiot TV anchor in NYC said that the name referred to boxing, as in behemoths beating the daylights out of each other while shopping for after Christmas sales.
The ignorance of these idiots in the media pollutes the minds of the ignorant populace. This is a clear sign of the social and educational decay of America.
It’s called Boxing Day because people open boxes, as in opening Christmas presents.
“In Britain, it was a custom for tradesmen to collect ‘Christmas boxes’ of money or presents on the first weekday after Christmas as thanks for good service throughout the year. This is mentioned in Samuel Pepys‘ diary entry for 19 December 1663. This custom is linked to an older English tradition: Since they would have to wait on their masters on Christmas Day, the servants of the wealthy were allowed the next day to visit their families. The employers would give each servant a box to take home containing gifts and bonuses, and sometimes leftover food.”
In other news, how in the bloody hell was Christ’s Mass for you? Did you go to church or simply indulged in the commercialism of the season?
