Happy Boxing Day! (No conference call.)

We hope you are all enjoying being with your family and friends today.   We sure are and we wanted to let you know that our conference call will take place on THURSDAY, December 28th  this week.

Here is some interesting trivia about Boxing Day.

 Boxing Day – the Day after Christmas!

Boxing Day takes place on December 26th and is only celebrated in a few countries; mainly ones historically connected to the UK (such as Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand) and in many European countries. In Germany it is known as “Zweite Feiertag” (which means ‘second celebration’) and also “Zweiter Weihnachtsfeiertag” which translates as Boxing Day (although it doesn’t literally mean that)!

It was started in the UK about 800 years ago, during the Middle Ages. It was the day when the alms box, collection boxes for the poor often kept in churches, were traditionally opened so that the contents could be distributed to poor people. Some churches still open these boxes on Boxing Day.
