       Do you know that today is Boxing* Day(节礼日)? But thisholiday has nothing to do with fighting!
  Boxing Day takes place on December 26, and is celebrated in Britain, Australia, Ireland and other Common wealth countries(英联邦国家). Like Christmas Day, Boxing Day is also a public holiday. Why is it called Boxing Day?
  It is not certain how Boxing Day got its name. Here is one possible answer: In the past, employers usually gave gifts to their workers the day after Christmas. The workers took the presents home and celebrated a second Christmas. Boxing Day received its name because the gifts were placed in boxes. How do people celebrate Boxing Day?
  In recent times, Boxing Day has overtaken New Year as the start of big sales. Many big shopping malls usually open up very early on Boxing Day morning, and offer big discounts(折扣) to customers. So, many people celebrate the holiday by shopping. (注:“boxing”除了盒式包装,还有拳击的意思。)
