Boxing Day: What Is Boxing Day? A Brief History

The day-after-Christmas holiday is celebrated by most countries in the Commonwealth, but in a what-were-we-doing-again? Bout of amnesia, none of them are really sure what they’re celebrating, when it started or why. The best clue to Boxing Day’s origins can be found in the song “Good King Wenceslas.” According to the Christmas carol, Wenceslas, who was Duke of Bohemia in the early 10th century, was surveying his land on St. Stephen’s Day — Dec. 26 — when he saw a poor man gathering wood in the middle of a snowstorm. King Wenceslas didn’t start Boxing Day, but the Church of England might have. But wait: there’s another possible story about the holiday’s origin.
