Boxing Day

Yesterday was December 25th, Christmas Day. Which makes today St Stephen’s Day; it’s the second day of Christmas, the day on which my true love sent me a pair of turtle doves, and in the UK it’s also known as Boxing Day.

It’s been a few years since I posted this, so here’s a topical love poem, taken from my collection Around the Corner from Hope Street.

    1. I always though of the 25th as “unboxing day”, so it would have been more logical to have Boxing Day on the 24th. Alternatively, Boxing Day coming after Christmas Day made it sound like we should all be fighting over the presents.

      Hope you’re having a suitably festive time!
