The Day after Boxing Day

Boxing Day is the day after Christmas when all the workers who service your home pop around to visit with their box. You the householder, hand out tips of gratitude to the butcher, the baker, the milkman, the postman and any other men who provide a service! Or at least that's the traditional, old fashioned tradition.

We, all modern American's, are heading back home for the "wedding."

So whilst we're away, here are a few posts, some of the more popular or older posts that you may have missed.

This time of year when families gather, old memories come back as reminders, whether they are welcome or not. They are useful reminders that whatever you think is adrift in your current life, there is no way to accurately "predict the future."

Parents all over the world, endeavour to do the best for their children but sometimes we have to admit to ourselves that we're all just "muddling through."

During any holiday, parents can bump into the unexpected, little hurdles that we aim to clear but often "trip us up."

Some parents have a partner to assist them in the task of raising children, others are less fortunate. Others still, fail to appreciate the "input of the other parent."

Multitasking is the name of the game if you happen to be a parent. Whilst you never imagined that you would become a juggler in your old age, if you hope to survive you need to dig up those "hidden talents."

Modern life means we have it easy as appliances, make domestic existence "so much more flexible."

Since the holiday season is over, I can return to my "grumpy old self."

They say that travel broadens the mind, but all too often it leads you down a "blind alley."

A speech impairment or delay can be a curious thing. Sometimes you may feel that you are "wading through treacle."

We are all too free with our opinions, but sometimes we may inadvertently reach the "wrong conclusion."

Some of us are slopping in our definitions, but other people require "more precision."

See you later alligators.

I had a conversation with a friend who is South African about Boxing Day. I said, "Why don't we have Boxing Day in America because all the other English-speaking countries seem to?" And he pointed Americans didn't want to have any British holidays. But Boxing Day sounds like a lovely idea.

I really had no idea what Boxing Day really was. I always think of it as a sort of foreign Black Friday type day.

Thanks for the translation on Boxing Day. My sister tried to explain it to me a year or so ago and I thought she said something about shopping. I must have been distracted by the buzz from the long distance call or the children ;)
