Boxing Day, December 26th, is a public holiday in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Europe and countries in the Commonwealth of Nations with a mainly Christian population. It is based on the tradition of giving gifts to the less fortunate members of society. Contemporary Boxing Day in many countries is now a "shopping holiday" associated with after-Christmas sales.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my recovery takes no holidays
that my "recovery program" seems to just kick-in when I least expect it
for a fine gratitude meeting on Christmas Day followed by the food and fellowship of many friends at Lambda Center
that I'm a day older than yesterday and still sober!!
for the lifetime of entertainment given by (Santa Baby) Eartha Kitt, who died Christmas Day (very appropro) at age 81
He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.
