      A Boxing Day picnic is going on a picnic on Boxing Day. The picnic is not really customary but Boxing Day is. Boxing Day is the day after Christmas and a public holiday – except this year it falls on a Sunday! It is called Boxing Day because it the old days it was the day to store the boxes for next year that the Christmas presents had come in. These days, only the name survives!
