Being married to a scotsman we celebrate Boxing day . In the days of ''upstairs downstairs'' in Britain all the servants worked on christmas day , cooking ,serving and cleaning for the masters most of the day . The next day , the masters re wrapped the servants gifts in the boxes used the previous day and so it was named Boxing day . This is a big holiday ,usually used to visit friends that you did,nt see on christmas day . Unfortunately i,m using boxing day to recuperate from the remnants of the flu , been sick for around a week so that,s why i,ve not been typing for the past few days . I wish everyone a happy and very healthy holiday season .
