Christmas in Great Britain

The celebration of Boxing Day, which takes place on December 26 - the feast of St. Stephen, is a part of the holiday season unique to Great Britain. Traditionally, it is on this day that the alms box at every English church is opened and the contents are distributed to the poor. Also, this is the day that servants traditionally received the day off to celebrate with their families. It became traditional for working people to break open their tip boxes on this day.Hawaii
