Blumfeldt Boxing Day UK Sales & Deals
Every year on December 26 - one day after Christmas - the United Kingdom and other British Commonwealth countries celebrate the holiday which is known worldwide as Boxing Day.
In the past, Boxing Day was mainly linked to charity activities, as members of the aristocracy devoted this festivity to make gifts and favour of the underprivileged class of society, who would carry boxes of food delivered by the rich and shared them with their families: even today, the family environment is still an essential factor in understanding this festivity.
However, this celebration has transcended over the years, and today, apart from enjoying the company of relatives and friends after the traditional Christmas food and drink feast, watching football and other sports, Boxing Day mainly stands for shopping and mad discounts.
Boxing Day sales are, somehow, the British answer to Black Friday, and this is also the date chosen by many shops to start their winter promotions, from Canada to Australia. In the past, this tradition coincided with the arrival of the New Year, but in the last years, many shops started anticipating their discounts and offers to the day of Saint Stephens, thus multiplying their sales. This has led many people to queue in front of shops and department stores to take advantage of amazing Boxing day deals for a wide range of products, from consumer electronics to clothing and home appliances.
What is the origin of Boxing Day?
To find out the origin of Boxing Day, we must bear in mind that there are various versions as to when this tradition was born. One of them takes us back to the 16th century when the British Empire began to sail the waters and take control of international trade. The British fleet, both military and commercial, travelled the entire globe expanding the Anglo-Saxon culture and annexing territories to the Empire.
Legend has it that before the voyage began, a monk would board the ships and offer a box to the sailors as an offering, in the hope that they would return home safely. The package was then sealed and remained so throughout the voyage. If and when the ship returned, the box would be given to the priest so that the clergyman could open distribute it among the poor, one day after Christmas.
Another version takes us back to Victorian times. This interpretation points out that the origin of the story lies in the delivery of boxes containing gifts by the employers to their employees to compensate them for their work on Christmas Day. Another version suggests that the term Boxing Day derives from the tradition, followed by the British aristocracy, of handing over to the poor the leftovers from the lunch that was served on 25th December in their homes.
