Boxing Day

In the Commonwealth countries, this is Boxing Day. In the Benelux and a few other European nations this is Tweede Kerstdag or 2nd Christmas Day. Rumor has it that it may take two days for the baby Jesus to be born in Belgium.

Europeans talk about Americans eating so much, but two Christmas Dinners? The second day does eliminate most excuses for not visiting both sets of in-laws.

Aboard Maitreya, we had most of our celebration yesterday. This included Stol or Kerststol, eggnog, and baked oysters.

Prettige Kerstdagen
