Boxing Day

Today I am in Canada with my family  celebrating the Christmas Holiday. December 26th is a special day in the former Commonwealth. Many of you that know me well, also know that I was born in London, England.  December 26th or as it is commonly known – Boxing Day is traditionally a day following Christmas when wealthy people and homeowners in the United Kingdom would give a box containing a gift to their servants.  This old tradition of giving to the less fortunate has been largely displaced by huge retail sales much the same as “Black Friday” sales following Thanksgiving in  my other home – the US. Nevertheless at this time of the year it is great to reflect on the past 12 months and the blessings in our lives.

I wish you all the very best this holiday season.
