Morning Free Association: December 26

Good morning B2B. I and the rest of the staff here hope that you have had a wonderful holiday season. Honestly I have no idea what Boxing Day is, so let’s go to Wikipedia!

Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated on the day following Christmas Day[1] in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth nations. Boxing Day occurs on 26 December, although the attached bank holiday or public holiday may take place either on that day or a day later.

In the liturgical calendar of Western Christianity, Boxing Day is the second day of Christmastide,[2] and also St. Stephen’s Day.[3] In some European countries, notably Germany, Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands and the Nordic countries, 26 December is celebrated as a Second Christmas Day

Huh, so it’s second Christmas, is that like second breakfast?

We still have to wait one more day for Bruins hockey to return, when the Bruins head to Columbus to take on the NHL leading null
Blue Jackets.

Hopefully Santa brought the Bruins some more wins!

Hello!

Hope everyone had a great time celebrating whichever holiday you choose to celebrate.

I had no idea you don’t call it Boxing Day in the US! As I understand it, the name comes from the days when aristocratic families used to box-up the leftovers from Christmas Day and give them to the servants the day after. There are other explanations for the name, but that one seems most plausible to me.

Got a lovely present from Mrs Bear – an F1-themed case of beers! She got a bottle from each country that hosts a Grand Prix (except Bahrain and Abu Dhabi of course) and got some lables made up with a map of the track and circuit data. She’s very good at these thoughtful-type presents.

Was really disappointed with the Carolina loss. I know Bs got a point out of it but they were 2-0 up and seemingly handing the Canes their asses until that shorty seemed to change the complexion of the game totally. If we miss the playoffs by a point again I will blame that game. Ho hum…

On tap – tea and coffee drunk from my new Zootropolis mug (present from Baby Bear smile )

I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Should probably be home in bed but came into the office even though we are closed to get some stuff done that I’ve had to put on the back burner.
