Celebrating Boxing Day

Celebrating Boxing Day

Once again, it’s Boxing Day, the last vestige of Saturnalia that is still somewhat widely celebrated in the world today. Sadly, celebrating it will be hard and rarer in 2021. The fear and economic ruin surrounding COVID-19, combined with the Great Resignation, has largely destroyed the underpinnings of this so very delightful holiday.

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. 😉
