Boxing Day

Today is Boxing Day, probably the biggest shopping day of the year in New Zealand. We actually ventured out to the mall closest to our house, but didn’t end up buying anything at any of the numerous Boxing Day Sales. I did pick up some items on special at the supermarket in the mall—does that count?

Tonight we’re going over to my sister-in-law’s house for dinner, which will be nice. You could call it our St. Stephen’s Day Feast, but that would be silly because, Good King Wenceslas notwithstanding, few people I know have ever even heard of the day (though Kiwis of Irish and Welsh descent may have).

Mostly, this was just a quiet day after Christmas, with all the dogs—ours and the visiting dog, Boy—all napping contentedly. So, a good day in other words.

Well, apart from that rain humidity, but that’s the way it goes.
