What do you mean by the word 'Boxing Day' and its origin?Usually the next day after Christmas is known to be Boxing Day in European countries. When Cricket matches are usually conducted on this day in those countries, commentators call them as Boxing Day matches. But usually we don't have much knowledge regarding this word. Why this particular term is used for the day next to Christmas? Is it related something to the festival of Christmas or any different specialty is there for it in relation to the festival. How this word originated? I request knowledgeable members to through some light on this particular word and the stories which lie behind the origin of this word.
