Mary Ann - you are right, we do call today Boxing Day and the main reasons it's called that are here http://www.factmonster.com/spot/boxingday1.html
As it's been such a quiet Christmas for us, it continues the same today here. It's quite a dark afternoon, and temperatures due to be a warm 37F today but at the lowest 25F. That's warm here for this time of year.
Today we eat leftovers traditionally - turkey curry, vegetable soup and endless mince pies and Christmas cake, not to mention chocolates, sweets and nibbles of varying sorts. I have put on 2lb which I think is reasonable as I haven't stuck to my diet for 2 weeks. I plan to recommence it next week - just giving my body chance to get well again (lol, who am I kidding - just wanted to 'pig out' like everyone else over the festive season).
To all of you yesterday who needed prayer, or mentioned those who did, I have added them all to my list - spreading the prayer round the world can't be bad I reckon - especially as today is the anniversary of the tsunami, my heart goes out to all those affected.
A Peaceful and prosperous New Year to you all!
