Boxing Day Blues?

Well Christmas day has long gone and past and we now celebrate Boxing Day what does Boxing day mean to you?

To mean it means, tidying up a little read for the fun and games later, having a luxury bubble bath with no interruptions, spending time with my family and friends catching up with people we did not see on Christmas Day.

Lastly and especially for me today listening and watching my 3 children en joy playing with their presents and helping them set up their new Xbox Kinnect so here's hoping for lots of fun exercise, a few chocolates  and also lots of leftovers along, no cooking today along with a few celebratory drinks to wash it all down with...

My friend Becky over at Baby Budgeting has a great post this is a snippet of it 

Good King Wenceslas
Acccording to the carol (and legend) “Good King Wenceslas.” Wenceslas, who was Duke of Bohemia in the early 10th century, was looking out onto his land  on St. Stephen’s Day ,Dec. 26,when he saw a poor man gathering wood in a snbowstorm. The King gathered up food and wine and carried them through the blizzard to the poor mans door. The alms-giving tradition has always been closely associated with the Christmas season, but King Wenceslas’ good deed came the day after Christmas. Giving and gifting to the needy is closely tied in with most accounts of the reson for boxing day

my thanks to her for bothering to look it all up!

Also another blogging friend at GhostWriterMummy has created a linky so we can all share our own reasons to be cheerful on Boxing Day and not dwell on Boxing Day Blues.. 
why not add your post to her linky now?

Have a great Boxing Day. Emma x
