Countdown Starts Again

Christmas Day The Day After.  Now we start another countdown and this one is more like a countdown rather than a countup.

As an aside, the Christmas Day clock is now at 364 and ticking away.  So if you loaded it on your smart phone, it can keep you company for another year.

We know that today's the day to get our gifts (boxes) from the 'boss".  Too bad the tradition didn't carry through to modern day and there would be a bonus from our corporate employers.

Perhaps South Africa understood that this tradition was better left behind.  It renamed Boxing Day to Day of Goodwill in 1994.

Other countries call this Second Christmas Day: In some European countries, most notably Germany, Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands and those in Scandinavia, 26 December is celebrated as the Second Christmas Day.

What should we do on the Second Christmas Day? "Many people spend the second day of Christmas in much the same way as Christmas Day."  So we'd be having a second or third turkey dinner today.

Here are two views of Jordan Harbour from last year.
