Boxing Day can feel like quite a strange name for a holiday in many senses. I often imagined it had something to do with actual fisticuffs as a child. My vivid imagination took me on different paths to why the day after Christmas got such a name 🙂 Tracking back where the term has come from has led historians in different directions as well. The theories where the word is originated from are many. But, they all boil down to the same thing: share and give!
Boxing Day, Second Day of Christmas, Day of Goodwill, Saint Stephen’s Day, Second Day of Christmastide, Day after Xmas or December 26th. A day with many names, a holiday in some countries and a day when everything goes back to normal in other countries, even though the festive season continues.
No matter where in the world you are, on holiday or not, it is a day to remember the less fortunate, friends and family and to share.
Boxing Day Origin
The Oxford English Dictionary traces the origin of the word Boxing Day back to 1833. This was when the earliest print of this term was found—four years before Charles Dickens referred to it in his “The Pickwick Papers”.
We might not know precisely where the term originated from; even the historians do not agree in between themselves about the origin of this term. However, many of the theories are though that it goes back to the charity that was distributed to the lower classes on the day after Christmas. And with that, back to the joy of giving what you can provide.
Whether it was the Christmas boxes filled with small gifts, money and leftovers from the Christmas dinner given to servants in the household or the Alm boxes placed in the churches during the Advent that gave the name, the theme is to share and give. December 26th is also the feast of St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, a saint known for his acts of charity. A true day for sharing and giving in all senses.
