This is a holiday we should share

This is uncivilized. Here I am working on Boxing Day, as the day after Christmas is known in much of the English-speaking world. In dozens of nations this is an official holiday, just as it should be in the United States. For the good of the country and the benefit of the downtrodden, this should not be a day to toil. To elevate the economy, the middle class, our sacred family bonds, and all things good and true, this should be a holiday.

This plea is likely to fall on deaf ears. Having been forced to pay people not to work on Dec. 25, business is unlikely to go along with a freebie on Dec. 26. As Ebeneezer Scrooge might have said to Bob Cratchit, “A poor excuse for picking a man’s pocket every 25th and 26th of December!” That’s typically shortsighted.
