The day after Christmas is know as "Boxing Day" in England and that or the more generic "boxes" is the header theme. I will leave it to Mac to give the official description of Boxing Day in the UK. But part of the tradition involves boxes of food and gifts for the less well off. The same happens here. The US Marines collect and distribute Toys for Tots. The Boy Scouts in our area do a food drive the week before Thanksgiving. We support these efforts and occasionally drop off food at the local community food bank. And so a box of boxes (and some cans) of food were dropped off at the food bank earlier this week in honor of the British tradition of Boxing Day!
Boxes also played a part in our own family tradition of exchanging gifts. We are not traveling this Christmas, so with the help of the US Postal Service boxes of gifts were sent to our family scattered across this USA. We also received some boxes from across the USA, which were put under the tree. They have now been open and we are enjoying the contents. Thanks all. The rest of the post is just having fun with camera and gift boxes we have to use on a future Christmas.
