Americans certainly go to town on the Christmas lights in and outside their homes. We have seen some incredible displays since being here. This house was nuts, with so many lights outside. I tried grabbing a still from a moving car, we were in a hurry! I knew it wouldn’t come out but it gives you the idea, this is someones front garden!
Americans don’t celebrate Boxing Day, which in the UK gets its name from when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts from their superiors or employers, known as a “Christmas box”. Today, Boxing Day is better known as a bank or public holiday that occurs on 26 December, or the first or second weekday after Christmas Day, depending on national or regional laws. It is observed in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and some other Commonwealth nations. (Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxing_Day)
