Boxing Day is celebrated on December 26th in England, Australia, Canada, and many other countries with ties to the British Commonwealth. One story of its origin is that servants were originally required to work Christmas, but were given a box of gifts and the day off on the 26th. Another possible origin is that it was the day in which churches would distribute the contents of their alms boxes to the poor.
