Two Turtle Doves 1

On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me Two Turtle Doves…

December 26th is here and so this is the “Second Day of Christmas.” I am following the Western Christian traditions for my Twelve days. In the Eastern tradition, (Orthodox Churches) the Twelve Days of Christmas begin today.

December 26th, or The Feast of Stephen, is a holiday in many parts of the what was the British Empire – and now the Commonwealth Nations. In most Commonwealth Countries it is called Boxing Day. Why the day is called Boxing Day isn’t exactly clear – however most sources cite that the “box” being referenced has to do with those better off helping out those in need with gifts of money and durable goods. It is thought that since these gifts were often given in boxes – that the day became know as Boxing Day.
