Boxing Day used to mean a big buffet spread was put out and all the family and their friends and any neighbors would drop in to say hi, compare Christmas Day's events, exchange good wishes and play ping pong while nibbling whenever the urge hit them.

Us three boys would have gone out duck hunting in the weeks prior to Christmas and Mom would cook up a few ducks to go with the leftover turkey and the ham on the buffet. Lots of people of all ages would be coming and going most of the day - the younger ones |(and the young at heart|) would partake in the ping pong tournament that went on all day.

Nowadays we usually stay home and catch up with far away friends/family by email or by phone. The mood is good, the food is a lot less the center of attraction and the day is much quieter. We will go out with our 4-legged kids for a good walk (weather permitting) to get some fresh air and work off a bit of last night's fare.

However anyone celebrates (or not) Boxing Day - stay safe, drive with care, and please do not drink and drive.... it just ain't worth the consequences.
