It’s Boxing Day!

It’s Boxing Day!

It’s Boxing Day, a holiday traditionally celebrated on the 1st week-day after Christmas in nations that are part of the UK and/or heavily influenced by the British Empire. One, fun Victorian tradition – harkening back to Rome’s Saturnalia celebrations – back was the masters / mistresses and their servants doing a role-reversal for the day.

In other words, these beautiful maids are to be serviced, not to serve upon this day of the year. 😉
