Quote of the day for Boxing day 2019

“Only twenty-seven people in Britain can explain why the day after Christmas Day is called Boxing Day, but that doesn't stop millions from marking it by staying home from work. An intriguing side effect of thus having two consecutive public holidays is that no matter what days of the week they fall on, the British can easily justify taking the whole week off."

(Alan Beechey, from "Murdering Ministers: An Oliver Swithin Mystery.")
