Wiki:

Boxing Day is traditionally a day following Christmas when wealthy people and homeowners in the United Kingdom would give a box containing a gift to their servants. Nowadays Boxing Day is better known as a bank or public holiday that occurs on December 26, or the first or second weekday after Christmas Day, depending on national or regional laws. It is observed in Great Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and some other Commonwealth nations.

In the US it's usually the day we return all the crappy gifts we don't want. :p

I agree, I've always thought it meant returning the crappy gifts that you've "un-boxed". Unfortunately the true meaning (good or bad) has been lost to commercialism. Like Black Fridays, Canadians are using that now as well.

Looks more like a British Commonwealth day, I remember it when I spent a couple of years in the UK.
