And there is much round bacon consumed.
It's a day of seasonal change.
Not what I wanted to see in my #whatsappwonderbox this morning. I sincerely hope it’s a joke about Santas’ taking Boxing Day too literally. If not, these guys are a disgrace to their ‘uniform!’ pic.twitter.com/iGPqcOh69u— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) December 26, 2018
Even Santa needs to release some stress after the busiest day of his year.

Am I going to Canada’s largest mall on Boxing Day? Am I a sucker for punishment?— merry lindsmas 🎄 (@sunbonnettrio) December 26, 2018

Not to worry. Canada will defend its southern border and repel any American invasion. Happy Boxing Day! https://t.co/A0hg6y5MKG— Paul J Elliott (@PaulJElliott) December 26, 2018

For the US conservatives on my feed: soon, non-denominational-socialized-winter-festivities will occur in Canada. All are issued a festivity stick and judged by a death-panel on their suitability with toeing the party line. Then, on Boxing Day, Queen Elizabeth fights a kangaroo.— Dennis Detwiller (@drgonzo123) December 3, 2018
This Tweet is from early December, but it's just too good to not include.
Stay safe, Canada!
