365 Day Blog challenge Day 37 – Boxing Day #365daychallenge

Hope everyone that celebrates had a lovely Christmas Day. For us here in the UK the day after is Boxing Day a bank holiday so steeped in tradition I had to look up the meaning on Wikipedia!

Meaning: mid 19th century: from the custom of giving tradespeople a Christmas box on this day.

Reality: another bank holiday for many people, lots of leftover Turkey to eat and the start of the new year half price sales.

There are no trains running (at least in my part of England), the buses aren’t even running on Sunday times they’re so infrequent so unless you have a car, it’s another excuse to snuggle up inside and watch more rubbish TV.

I attempted to go out and get some essential food bits (my sale shopping started online yesterday and will continue in the shops tomorrow) so a taxi ride back home later and I’m back in my pyjamas and one of the books I got for Christmas.

Happy holidays everyone 🙂
