Clay Aiken – The Day After Christmas

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas celebration!

Did you know that today is Boxing Day?

Boxing Day takes place on December 26th and is only celebrated in a few countries. It was started in the UK about 800 years ago, during the Middle Ages. It was the day when the alms box, collection boxes for the poor often kept in churches, were traditionally opened so that the contents could be distributed to poor people. Some churches still open these boxes on Boxing Day.

The Christmas Carol, Good King Wenceslas, is set on Boxing Day and is about a King in the Middle Ages who brings food to a poor family.

It was also traditional that servants got the day off to celebrate Christmas with their families on Boxing Day. Before World War 11, it was common for working people to travel to their delivery places and collect their Christmas Box or tip. This tradition has now mostly stopped and any Christmas tips are not normally given or collected on Boxing Day.

The talented SueReu put together a touching video montage of Clay singing All Year Long. Thank you Sue…it’s like a wonderful Christmas Present. ENJOY!!

  1. I saw Clay sing this song at his Christmas concert. He left the stage and came up the aisle singing before he turned and walked out of the concert hall. He stopped right at the end of the row of seats I was in. I tried to take a photo, but I was so excited all I got was a fuzzy photo!
