Have you heard of Boxing Day? I read about it in one of Jen’s magazines that Grandma brought back from England. The holiday dates back to England in the Middle Ages when it was likely a time to remember the orphaned and widowed by leaving coins in an alms box.
Today in England many people like to go out for a country walk, or ramble, on Boxing Day.
I thought it sounded like a good idea… A little time with nature after a busy Christmas, new girls…. holiday dresses everywhere.
I slipped on my new windbreaker and my hiking pants. I got a new Christmas dress this year, but this jacket is what I feel most comfortable in.
I also received new tennis shoes and Pom Pom socks, which are the best thing ever!! Thanks Grandma!
It’s been a mild winter here, so I heard a lot of birds singing. I even saw a coyote being chased by a flock of crows!
I think the English tradition of walking in nature the day after Christmas is a super idea!
