In the olden days, Christmas presents were opened the day after Christmas which falls on the 26th of December hence known as Boxing Day in referral to the boxes of presents that were opened that day. After much feasting and lavish dinners to the Celebrate Christmas Day, the opening of presents were left to the next day..
After the feasting and dining
We celebrate a day left to open the fares
Of the great gifts received by noblemen told
Whose servants attended to this tradition of old...
On a day of much reverence
The feast is restored
Where kings and noblemen and servants rejoice...
