Well of course I do and although sitting here, our family still upholds this day as a day off. We have the best food today and although family is far far away, we do our best. I just got the best holiday gift (box) ever! (Not telling).

I do - our best friends are from Canada and today is 'their day' to savor the past few days without work! I believe it originated in the UK though. Happy Boxing Day, Gloria!
