Boxing Day is celebrated the day after Christmas in many countries, including Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. While origins of the holiday are debated, a popular belief is that Boxing Day comes from a tradition of the wealthy gifting boxes filled with goods to their servants as a token of appreciation for their work on Christmas Day.
Today, Boxing Day traditions can include fox hunting, drinking at the local pub and of course, shopping some of the biggest discounts of the year from top retailers. So...consider this shopping day your reward for surviving the hectic holiday celebrations!
Here's what to know before the big day.
