Australia's Boxing Day is the second lovliest day of the year - holidays reign supreme in Oz and this one, much like Christmas Day, is designed for relaxation and family pursuits.
Good on ya, Austalia, for devoting two days in a row to the mid-summer holiday.
So as not to offend we here at Bass Street join you in allowing the day to simmer on a low flame.
Happy Christmas to all those Norte Americanos whom we love and cherish. We miss you, but not your weather. We send blasts of warmth in your directions.
