Its the day after … after all the shopping, celebrating and most important of all, all the eating and drinking. What to do next? Its time of the ‘S’ events, is what I call it.
Time for shopping, as well as all the sporting events to commence. Boxing Day shopping is famous for the deep discounts and crowds of bargain hunters. Although I have been one of those who will do anything to avoid crowds, one can’t help getting caught up in the excitement of post Christmas shopping. Its a time to stock up on next year’s christmas decorations, presents as well as things you really really wanted for Christmas!
Of course in Melbourne, there is always the Boxing day cricket match at the MCG. This year, it is between Australia and South Africa. Personally, I prefer to keep track of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race.
And finally for those of us, not into the above two ‘S’s, there is always the third S, for sleeping.
