Boxing Day in Clayton-le-Woods
Boxing Day .. All the presents unwrapped, the last slice of turkey eaten and now it’s time to relax and spend time with friends and family.
The origins of Boxing Day can be traced back to the Victorian era were it was traditionally a day off for servants. They would received a ‘Christmas Box’ to take home containing gifts, bonuses and sometimes leftover food. December 26th is also the feast day of Saint Stephen, the patron saint of horses, which is why Boxing Day has come to be associated with horse racing and fox hunting. But throughout the years it has always been a special time to gather your friends and family together.
We hope you have a fantastic Boxing Day and we’ll see you soon!
