Boxing Day

Candy Cane Day

Thank-you Note Day

Now that Christmas is past Canada Celebrates with Boxing Day Sales.  Before packing everything away for storage the Retail Stores offer Christmas decorations and supplies at greatly reduced prices.  But you have to get there early for the best selection.
