Does your country have 'Boxing Day'? As far as I understand, and this is going off of memory... in England, the day after Christmas there would be so many boxes, bags and paper on the streets (from opening of gifts) for the rubbish men to collect that it would be necessary for everyone to stay home for them (the rubbish men) to clear the streets and clean up. Had it been a normal day then it would be impossible. In my country we have it and it is a welcome break. I could not imagine having to go back to a 9-5 job right after Christmas Day.
NOTE: I did not put this in the CHristmas board because it does not have anything really to do with Christmas itself.
