Happy Boxing Day from The Night Beat

To all my Canadian, Australian, UK, and possibly other Commonwealth countries I wish all of you a very happy boxing day. I was in Montreal a number of years back before Christmas, and though there were Christmas trees and decorations galore, EVERY SIGN was pre-boxing day sale. (There was also the gorgeous Eaton Center/RCMP Girls, but that is another story.) I know it is a big thing.

This year in the USA it is Gov't Christmas Day (can't lose a day off so we need a four day weekend). I assume it's the same in Canada, so I was wondering how our north of the border friends handle the two holiday collision. I would love to hear from you.
