With the kids going back to school in January, equip them with backpacks, lunchboxes and more in the boxing day sales this year. If you're looking to help them study with some tech, there are great prices on laptops, tablets and printing equipment. Treat them, or yourself, to a new mobile phone so you can better keep in touch in-between lessons and when they're out and about.
Boxing Day is a national holiday, held on the 26th December in Britain and many Commonwealth countries. But why is it called Boxing Day? No one knows for sure how the name came about, but popular associations with the sport 'boxing' and returning unwanted presents in boxes are historically unfounded. The two main compelling ideas are both associated with charity. One is that alms boxes were placed in churches to collect for the poor during Advent and then distributed on the 26th. The other is that aristocrats would recognise the good work of their employees by gifting 'Christmas boxes' on the 26th (as they would have worked on the 25th) containing gifts, money and leftovers.
