The origin of the “Gift Box Day” is not entirely clear. There is said to have been a day in Ancient Rome in December when slaves and their masters exchanged roles. Later, the tradition of staff getting gifts from their employers on December 26th probably arose.
Today, Boxing Day is a tradition in the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa, among others, but above all as a busy day and date for major transgaming.orgs competitions.
