Message:  In Manitoba where I am from, the Boxing Day tradition included visiting with your neighbors and sharing what you got for Christmas. You would carry something in it's "box" with you to show off. Hence the name Boxing Day. Don't know what it means elsewhere. I loved all the goodies that people had to eat in those different neighbors houses because everyone there was an immegrant. Some Norweigian, Scotch, Ukranian, Russian, Polish and all with their own cuisine! Lots of tasty food.
