Kerry is back, and so is Open Link Monday for the writers' group
Today, in many countries including Canada, is Boxing Day.
The exact origins of Boxing Day are lost in the mists of time, but this is the version told to me by my grandmother when I was a child:
on Boxing Day
took boxes of food to the poor
of course they sat
the boxes to the humbler doors
but the ladies
waved, smiled, nodded
accepting thanks which was their due
Boxing Day in Canada is now a day of large sales in many stores, with slashed prices enticing customers to line up before daylight for such things as electronic equipment at rock-bottom prices. I have never been tempted to do such a thing, but my husband has stood in the December cold to buy things he really wanted. I now have no idea what those things were. I wonder if he knows.
