Boxing Day in Canada

Nope, Boxing Day has nothing to do with Manny Pacquiao. :-)

December 26 is the feast day of St. Stephen. St. Stephen Day is a way for the upper class to give gifts - cash or other goods - to those of the lower classes. It is now more known as Boxing Day in Canada.

Boxing Day is listed in the Canada Labor Code as a holiday. Boxing Day is also a great time for shopping, as more establishments are selling items at a lower price. Boxing Day sales, deals and promos are everywhere during Boxing Day in Canada!
