Boxing Day

I can’t really say that Boxing Day in Canada is the best thing ever, hell, it’s getting worse year by year if I had to be brutally honest. What was once a haven for those who could buy 10 years worth of toilet paper for the regular price of 3 rolls (this is probably a very big exaggeration) on boxing day has now become a regular day where store owners don’t really put out much cheap stuff.

However, I still love it.

The whole hustle and bustle in the stores, the rush-rush-rush-go-go-go environment, the excitement of seeing chocolate on sale (yaaaaaas) – it’s great!

Its been this type of tradition for me and my family to get up early in the morning and go boxing day shopping – first, we stop at the electronic stores (because typically my dad gets things from there), then we head off to Superstore, London Drugs, and Walmart (where my parents stock up on 5 years worth of chocolates and I buy myself as many DVDs and TV show boxsets as I can afford [i.e., buy all the Supernatural seasons or Marvel DVDs that I don’t have]). Finally, my dad will go back home and my mom and I will go raid the mall to see if there’s anything reasonably priced and nice to buy.

This year we didn’t really follow that ‘tradition’ because we had guests over, but it was nonetheless a nice day. I splurged a liiiiiittle bit too much, but I’m really excited about the stuff that I bought.

Numero uno → Holiday gift bags!

YAS.

YAAAAAS.

YAAAAAAAAAAAS.

That is all. I will control myself now.

 

What is boxing day like for everyone? Do you have boxing day in your country? Is there another event that happens the day after Christmas where you are from?
