The 26th of December,
Is known as Boxing Day,
Because that is when British bosses,
Chose to give a Christmas Box away.

It is celebrated all over the Commonwealth,
In SA, Aus, New Zealand and Malta,
But elsewhere in Europe and Ireland,
The appellation alters.

In Ireland it is named for St Stephen,
But in Europe as the 2nd Christmas Day.
Whatever it’s called, this tradition,
Survives from Roman times to this day.
