Christmas trees arrive

Christmas trees can already be seen through the windows of Charlotte houses. It seems early to me. I suppose their trees will be down Dec. 26 Boxing Day. The tree at our house comes down sometime after New Year’s Day.

What is Boxing Day? According to this, it’s an old Christmas tradition where employers gave servants boxes with gifts and the day off to visit with family. Now the tradition has evolved to the giving of gifts or money to those who provide service. Besides England, the holiday is celebrated in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
