Today is the day we put our Christmas gifts back in their boxes and return them to the store to exchange them for stuff we really want. Then we come home and eat leftovers. Boxing Day is not an official holiday in the United States (yet) but it is usually one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
Besides people returning and exchanging presents there are millions of gift certificates to be redeemed and there will be crowds of
cheapskates bargain hunters searching for after-Christmas specials.
Today is a lot more fun than New Years Day. January 1st is the day everybody tries to start dieting, quit drinking and begin following all those self-improvement resolutions they made. It’s the most miserable day of the year.
Oh yeah, today is also THE LAST MONDAY OF THE YEAR!!!
