Happy Boxing Day

>> Saturday, December 26, 2009

To all of our friends in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, Greenland, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Nigeria and some other countries of the Commonwealth of Nations we would like to wish you a Happy Boxing Day, also known as St. Stephens Day. We wish you all the best and Happy Shopping !!!
In case your from the US or another country that does not celebrate Boxing Day it is traditionally the day that the upper social classes gave to the service and tradesmen classes. It is a very old holiday and is deeply rooted as such. These days it has become much like the United States "Black Friday" and become a huge shopping day.

If you need some gardening, solar, or wind supplies you are welcome to visit the "Mercantile" in our top Navigation Bar.

Enjoy the rest of your Holidays, leave a comment, and come back often!
Peace and Prosperity to You,,Happy Homesteading,,
