Before sharing Boxing Day, I first want to share some photos from our Christmas Eve family traditions.
New PJ’s, lighting the Advent candles and singing carols.
Fast forward to Boxing Day (if you missed our Christmas Day, check it out here)
It appears than many of my blog readers don’t know about Boxing Day, so here you go:

What Boxing Day means to our family:
Traditionally Boxing Day is the day you see the rest of your family, that you did not spend Christmas Day, where you eat even more food!
It is also the day for the big sales to begin.
As my husband is working on-call today, we have had a quiet day at home (NO WAY I was considering taking my 3 kids with me to the first day of the sales!). The kids got to spend time with their new gifts, we found places for MOST of the new gifts to be stored, and we ate left overs from Christmas Day.
I particularly enjoy leftovers on Boxing Day as the food still tastes great without the work to produce it all!
Some friends call round this evening and we had mince pies and shortbread.
