Traditionally boys from the shops in each town asked for money at Christmas. They went from house to house on December 26 th. and took boxes made of wood with them. At each house people gave them money. This was a Christmas present. So the name of December 26 th. doesn't come from the sport of boxing, it comes from the boy's wooden boxes.

Now, Boxing Day is an extra holiday after Christmas Day.
