Boxing Day is a traditional English celebration, centuries old. On the day after Christmas, medieval nobles presented gifts from their own banquets to people outside of their manors, castles and palaces, welcoming them as family. Their gifts were presented in boxes, hence the name of the day. The Hemingway family, being of English origins, continued this tradition.
