As a teenager and lets face it, anytime I'm in a 'big city' for Christmas (I'm looking at you Calgary), the Boxing Day Sales were one of the highlights of the festive period. Getting the perfect bargin, that top that was $50 but is now $10, was awesome, but over the last few years of spending Christmas in Apollo Bay, away from any major shopping centres, the urgency to go to the sales has waned.
This year we put the call out to our friends and family to drop in during the afternoon. Bring your bathers, use the pool, have a post Christmas relax and chat, watch the cricket. And you know what? It just might be my new favourite Boxing Day activity.
How did you spend Boxing Day?
Is it a holiday where you are or just another day? It sure is nice having a post-Christmas come down day.
