Anyways she is sort of right... WHat Boxing day means to us is different
than that....atleast now anyways. What us Canadians mean by boxing day
is just another excuse for a sale. Yeah the same establishment that
beats and keeps down up and comming boxers such as Ryan WIssow...that
same establisment came up with a way to get people to spend and shop
after Christmas. Can you imagine a day at the mall worse than the night
before Christmas? I can it's called boxing day. You see boxing day
is the day when all the stores drastically slash prices by whopping sums
to ....A) make you feel like an idiot for buying that Sony Mini disc
Player for the car a week ago for $500, when they are selling for $250
ON BOXING DAY!!!!!!!
b) To clear the stock that didn't go at christmas.
C) last but not least....to make you go further in debt.
To make a long story short, BOXING DAY is the best sale of the
year.....you will never see boxing day prices until next boxing day. My
advice to Americans....COME DOWN ON BOXING DAY.....and make sure you
bring a shiny nickel. Prices are slashed like 70%!
