Boxing Day is an international public holiday that is celebrated on 26th December. It is meant to be the time when people usually receive and give out Christmas gift boxes. The term started to be used in the 1800s when rich people would box up gifts to give to the poor. It was also a day off for servants where they received a special Christmas box from their masters.
