26 Dec 2008 – Boxing Day
Contemporary Boxing Day in many countries is now a shopping holiday associated with after-Christmas sales. And I certainly have no intentions to shop! The origins of this day is based on giving gifts to the less fortunate members of society.
Christmas day lunch was at the Tanglin Club hosted by Leslie & Ivy. This is the first Christmas a Grinch approached me and told us to dampen our merry spirits. Leslie handled the situation tactfully by talking to the manager and the president of the club and we continued with our usual merry makings for & with the next 2 generations 🙂
Many thanks to Leslie & Ivy to gather 4 generations of family get together fun day.
And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more – Dr. Seuss
