Boxing Day!

  In England Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated the day following Christmas Day. As tradition is known, the holiday originated from the time when servants and workers would receive gifts from their bosses. The gifts given in boxes or lunch boxes became known as Christmas boxes. Boxing Day extends the Christmas festivities another day. The celebrations continue. Here in Milwaukee, Boxing Day calls for a nice fresh Bloody Mary–Milwaukee style–with a beer chaser. Happy Boxing Day!

A story. A good book. It can offer an hour or two or more of complete escape. The best gift ever in my opinion. It’s so fun to ship a book to someone’s front door or drop it into their Kindle or Nook. December 4-7 I’m touring around onto other writers’ blogs to give you gift ideas. Relax and click around.
