Today is Boxing Day in the UK and Ireland and in most areas settled by the English (the U.S. is the major exception), including Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
First a wee bit of history and at the end my suggestions for those of us in the US.

While the exact origins of the holiday are obscure, it is likely that Boxing Day began in England during the Middle Ages. The day is a national holiday and one to spend with family and friends (usually those not seen on Christmas Day itself,) and eating up the leftovers. Its origins however, are steeped in history and tradition.

Great sailing ships when setting sail would have a sealed box containing money on board for good luck.If the voyage were a success the box was given to a priest, opened at Christmas and the contents given to the poor.

St. Stephen's Martyrdom
The Feast of St. Stephen also takes place on December 26. St. Stephen was one of the seven original deacons of the Christian Church who were ordained by the Apostles to care for widows and the poor. For the success of his preaching and his devotion to Christ, St. Stephen was stoned to death by a mob. As he died, he begged God not to punish his killers
=====================
Now as we prepare for a new year perhaps this would be a great time to begin boxing up those items we no longer need, or use to give to charity or on craigs list. I have given a number of items on Craigs list that have brightened Christmas celebrations in several homes,
so now time to gather more books, clothes, and appliances we do not use and give to Goodwill, Salvation Army, or Craigs List for others to enjoy.

Dorothy I could turn your ac on if you want to come shovel emoticon
As I gaze out my window I see
A new day dawning, the earth covered in snow
Tracks of rabbit, squirrels, birds & deer
People slowing awakening as the Sabbath is here.

You have to clean your driveway and I had to turn on my AC. Go figure!

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
