Do you know where the Boxing Day Tradition comes from?

The actual custom of boxing day dates back further than we can be 100% sure about, but has been recorded as a tradition all the way back to a diary from 1663.  The custom varies from country to country and revolves mostly around boxing up left overs and gifts for the less fortunate and staff.  Now and days, it has become a super sale day for retailers to mark down the remaining holiday items that they want to clear off the shelves.  

For more information on the tradition, check out Wikipedia's entry on-line.

For other's, its a great day to start the search for their new home to move into for 2013.  To see a list of Boise Idaho Homes for Sale, click here!
