The Oxford dictionary defines Boxing Day as:
“A present or gratuity given at Christmas: in Great Britain, usually confined to gratuities given to those who are supposed to have a vague claim upon the donor for services rendered to him as one of the general public by whom they are employed and paid, or as a customer of their legal employer; the undefined theory being that as they have done offices for this person, for which he has not directly paid them, some direct acknowledgement is becoming at Christmas.”
Here at Paul Hahn & Co., we like to switch that around a bit:
A present or gratuity given at our year-end to those of the general public who are customers. The defined theory being that as they have been wonderful to this company, some direct acknowledgement is becoming after Christmas.
