Hilarious Tweets From Americans Who Have No Idea WTF Boxing Day Is About

Shopping in Australia on Boxing Day means taking punches from angry shoppers. At least, that’s what I thought it was?

As Aussies prep to get into their shopping frenzy on the 26 December, Americans are hella confused as to what exactly the day after Christmas is about.

And if you’ve always wanted to know the real reason as to why the day after Christmas Day is called ‘Boxing Day’, here’s the tea…

According to The Spruce, the name is a reference to holiday gifts aka, the ‘Christmas Box’.

All in all, enjoy this Boxing Day. Bank on those sales, fight off those crowds, and have a safe and Happy New Year.
