Happy Boxing Day!

December 26th, 2013 by theAddison

Well, the stockings were hung by the chimney with care.  Now they are under the sofa and there is torn wrapping paper, bits of ribbon and glitter everywhere.  Christmas day is over which brings us to the next big holiday….

Happy Boxing Day!  The day after Christmas, in England and some of their many colonies, is another holiday.  In old timey England, the servants had to work all Christmas day looking after the lords of the manors.  The day after Christmas became a day of appreciation for those workers and they would receive boxes of gifts (leftovers) from their employers.  Boxing Day is still a day off with pay in many of the ex-colonies including Canada and Australia.

In another week we have the Addison’s traditional and popular New Year’s Eve Champagne Tasting Happy Hour.  Our guests will enjoy a selection of sparkling wines and champagne from around the world as a great start to a festive New Year’s Eve.  After which, the holidays will be through for another season.

Time to start getting ready for Groundhog’s Day!
