The Lope: Happy Boxing Day

Happy Boxing Day

Boxing Day is a traditional holiday celebrated on December 26, mostly in the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

On that day, it was traditional for the "haves" to give to the "have-nots" - nobles to serfs, you know, or in a modern sense, employers to employees.

Here in the U.S., we simply go out and buy lots of Christmas crap for half-off.

Perhaps we should call it "Carting Day."

Or "Cramming Day."

Or - to give a nod to the British who call the trunk of a car the "boot" - "Booting Day."

Of course, one must pick up enough stuff for one's loyal friends. This is Santa, his first lieutenant (short snowman), and four of his elite snowtroopers. They only look jolly.

Hey Greg. We met you in Drexel, MO at the Christmas train. Did you post those pics and we missed them? Just wondering. All your photos are just great!

Not yet; I am so backed up on editing Christmas material from problems due to the ice storm, Christmas preparation and travel time that I'll be posting Christmas pictures until early January.
