Boxing day has been taken over in most of our cities with buy buy buy. Quick get to the shops and spend MORE than we did before Christmas. PLEASE! What is this insatiable need we have to spend more? This expression of greed to accumulate more things, more bell's and whistles. ARRRRGH! (Gordon Gecko, the inaccurate slick haired capitalist was wrong).
In my town the government has not allowed Boxing Day shop opening. 'They' say we are the laughing stock of the rest of the country. Really? If that what makes us a laughing stock then bring it on.
I spent the Boxing day enjoying the sun, a bike ride in the national park, left-overs and a picnic in the clear summer air after the family enjoyed the opening session of the Boxing Day test (Australia vs India) live from the traditional home of the boxing day test. Ok! so I didn't enjoy the opening session..but I tolerated it :)
