While some people enjoy spending the day after Christmas at home, relaxing with family or friends, others view it as an opportunity to snag some amazing deals.

Although Boxing Day has become a day known to host sporting events and for people to go shopping, it carries a deeper meaning in other parts of the world. In places like Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, Boxing Day reportedly refers to a holiday once used to recognize the less wealthy, such as “servants, tradespeople, and the poor,” by presenting them with gifts.
