What is Boxing Day

Why is Boxing Day called Boxing Day Have we had too much to drink so we box away Do we watch kangaroos have a boxing match Or do we box up our lives ready for a new one to hatch Was there an old man called Mr Boxing Who danced the streets, and thought no one was watching Did people make wooden boxes on this day To pop jack-in-the box in for children to play Oh why I ask is it called Boxing Day Be really nice to know....come poets do say?

Hi Angie…..well it’s from way back when…it’s the day when rich employers gave their servants a boxed gift apparently! Loved your poem my friend! Debxx
