Boxing Day — The Day After Christmas!
The 26th of December, frequently called Boxing Day, is also known as St. Stephen's Day.
Saint Stephen is remembered for being the first Christian martyr. Stephen looked after the poor, but was stoned to death in 36 A.D. for preaching the Gospel. His story is recorded in the Bible, in the sixth chapter of Acts.
Boxing Day is only celebrated in a few countries, mainly ones historically connected to the UK—such as Canada, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand—as well as countries in Europe.
The tradition actually started in the UK about 800 years ago. It was the day when alms boxes, collection boxes for the poor often kept in churches, were traditionally opened so that the contents could be distributed to poor people.
If you'd like to give to those less fortunate as they did many years ago.

Didn't know whether to put it in religion or spiritual,but thought Stephen would appreciate it! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Your point-of view-your angle.You can figure or put a mathematical formula to it in terms of numbers,but then spend your entire life theorizing that point as your philosophy to others and yourself.
