Did you know there is an organization holiday?! Well maybe it’s not an organization holiday, but it sure is a purging one!!
I always thought Boxing Day was well, about the sport boxing. And I have zero interest in any sports except personally snow skiing – LOVE that! And watching a few Olympic events like gymnastics and ice skating.
That’s my sum total of sports knowledge and interest. So I never even ventured to find out more about Boxing Day until last year…
I love Facebook! My friend was posting about Boxing Day and the origins of the event. And low and behold it has nothing to do with the sport boxing.
It’s about boxes!!!!
Boxing day is celebrated the day after Christmas when (those who had servants) would box up the items they no longer needed and give them away.
Americans NEED Boxing Day!
My hearts desire in my professional organization business is to help overwhelmed women organize their busy lives. Part of why we are so overwhelmed is due to the amount of “stuff” we keep around.
So in honor of boxing day… Fill those empty gift boxes with donations and donate them!
