In Canada, Boxing Day is a holiday. It is also the BIGGEST shopping day of the year. The bargains are quite good. I prefer NOT to go shopping on Boxing Day as it is insanely busy. I did do it once (I was up at 6am and at the store by 7am) to get me a new computer at Future Shop. It only took two hours to get in and out of the store.....I did get a sweet deal though $600 for a computer with a 15" LCD (a 15" LCD at that was going for $400).

I'm going to buckle down and read the rest of my travel guide on Belize. It's taken me two months and I am still trying to get through it...

I was once stationed in England while in the Air Force. That's the reason that I recall that the day after Christmas is Boxing Day.
Oh yes, spotted dick..... I remember that as well. It's a pudding with fruit.
