happy international box day

Apparently it is International Box Day.

I thought that was every day? What do I know.

Anyhow, here is a classic from the Elizabeth archives.
Happy Thursday!

Ah, Elizabeth. Good choice of boxes -- remember, if it fits, it ships!

you don't look too thrilled!! I sure hope you aren't being shipped somewhere! lol

Does Elizabeth miss out on Boxing Day by living in the US? Here in Australia we have Boxing Day, a public holiday, on 26th December.

Hmm...maybe I should provide Penny with a new box each year on that date. (She sleeps in the paper-recycling box on occasion.)

Hi Parlance (and all) -- No, we do NOT have Boxing Day here in the US, and I think Elizabeth would like to celebrate it! What is Boxing Day anyway?

parlance said...

It's a public holiday and no-one has to work. What's more to know?

I think it's because on the day after Christmas the richer people used to give gifts to the servants or the needy - in boxes.

How's that? We have a holiday and no-one knows why. I looked around the internet and my explanation is as good as any other theories, lol.

Elizabeth did not look happy in that box... Purrs

Hi Fin,
Well she SHOULD have, 'cause it was her idea! But that's Elizabeth.
