Today has been around since the Middle Ages in Europe and it’s probably not what you are thinking it is. Since on Christmas we celebrate by giving gifts to our family and friends on Boxing Day we are to give to those who help us in the community. It s known as the Feast of Saint Stephen and is celebrated by placing money in the Alms Box in the Narthex of most churches, hence “Boxing Day”. We should always remember those who remember us everyday by doing the things we have to have done… like picking up the trash, keeping our electric functioning and anything else we rely of every day.
How to celebrate – Give to others. Remember those who remember you. Celebrate life.
