Boxing Day

But, no. It is Monday after a Sunday Christmas; so in the good old US of A we celebrate this as Christmas. Yes, Christmas this year is December 26. Does that make December 27 Boxing Day? Silly person. We don't "do" Boxing Day" in the US of A. Our friends across the pond do; our neighbors to the north do, but short of smacking the someone around, we don't have a boxing day in the US of A.

Good thing, too, because if we push this calendar on down the road, 2012 may be half over before it starts. Oh, wait! January 1 is on Sunday, so then New Years Day must be on Monday. Hence the new year begins on January 2.

Oh, it is all so confusing.

I don't know what Boxing Day is, but I want it. Especially if it means another day to lay around in my jammies.
