BOXING DAY

Happy Boxing Day everyone :-D

I had to look up what Boxing Day was all about, I thought it was just about the cricket:)

It has been around since the middle ages and its thought that because all the servants worked on xmyth day they got the next day off and the nobs gave them boxes of leftovers:)

It is also the Feast of St. Stephen on December 26. St. Stephen was one of the seven original deacons of the Christian Church who were ordained by the Apostles to care for widows and the poor. For the success of his preaching and his devotion to Christ, St. Stephen was stoned to death by a mob. As he died, he begged God not to punish his killers.

Lovely story, I looked into it a little more and sheesh, those xstians sure know how to treat a feller who does good deeds!
