I looked it up once but I forget why you pretend-Brits and real-Brits have the holiday.

Is it to do with the Boxer Rebellion?

I thought it was originally because all the servants and many menial laborers had to work on Christmas, so their holiday was the day after. And now almost all of us are servants and menial laborers. Hurah!

Yeah, that's pretty much it. They would get "Christmas Boxes" with money, leftovers, gifts, etc.

I have no idea why Boxing Day exists, really. It only really became a factor when I started working retail. And as such, I just presumed it was somehow related to the consumerism of Christmas in one way or another.

What difference does visiting before or after Brexit make? You're not a EU citizen anyway, or are you?

It'll be easier to go between Ireland and Great Britain, for one. And I want to go before in case things change quite a lot after.

There's definitely a lot of uncertainty as to how much things will change in the UK once Brexit takes effect, big world events have been triggered from smaller things than this. All the change in the world right now just seems a little overwhelming to take in fully, personally.

As a kid, I just assumed it must have been a day for a big boxing match, but I was not a boxing fan so I never bothered to investigate further. Also it just happened to be one of the few days that exceeded 40 degrees every year, before those days started to get more and more frequent.

I think the most interesting thing about the Brexit fallout so far (granted I'm not a UK citizen...) is that Apple is already anticipating a long-term disruption and countering with an inflation for any Apple App-store purchases. I've already seen some pretty huge outcry from the app-gaming communities that I frequent.

So is everyone still alive? Just checking. Edie, I linked your bird blog as a response a friend's post of a less humorous bird blog. If you suddenly get a few weird, older, goths following you, I'm sorry.
