Enjoy Boxing Day delights with greater savings!
So many of us shop our hearts out before and during Christmas, thinking we get the best deals. But that’s not entirely true! Savings and shopping perks continue on the day after – Boxing Day (26 December in the US and 27 December in Singapore).
Boxing Day is one of the biggest holidays celebrated on the day after Christmas; traditionally, it’s a custom on this day to give money and other gifts to the needy and poor. Some say that this custom began from the lords and ladies of England presenting Christmas gift boxes to their servants on December 26 – hence the name.
Malls are usually closed during this period, as many retailers’ staff and people are busy feasting and exchanging gifts, so big bargains appear mostly online. Many also take the opportunity to spend gift cards and vouchers received on Christmas Day during this day.
Watch out for this week of holiday shopping specials online – it will likely be one of the biggest discounts of the year, equal to Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Discounts can go up to a whopping 50% from the big retailers, from fashion and electronic items to even baby products!
