Happy Boxing Day 2018, after-Christmas sale day or as I call it "retail desperation day." Stores will do absolutely anything to capture your attention today and close out the month strong.

What is Boxing Day? This post-Christmas occasion that has been around for decades in the UK and Canada, where it's bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. The name Boxing Day comes from Christmas boxes that were given by the rich to those in positions of servitude to say thank you.

While I'm not quite sure how that act of giving Christmas boxes has evolved into what is basically a Black Friday blitz, the momentum from across the pond and overseas has merchants like Amazon hosting Boxing Day sales this year yet again.

American retailers use Boxing Day to offer sales on products you may have wanted but not received on Christmas. With many people returning items, stores have additional sales listed with the hope you may pick something else alongside that exchange or swap.
