Boxing Day sales: the biggest shopping day of the year

Boxing Day is a public holiday in the United Kingdom that is celebrated after Christmas, precisely on December 26. Its origins are linked to the Middle Ages and nowadays it is the most important shopping event of the year. It is a day when families gather to continue their Christmas celebrations. They used to go out to the streets to enjoy all kinds of entertainment such as plays, variety shows, exhibitions and sporting events. But shopping seems to have become a “new sport” as well. The sales used to start in January, after the New Year, but now many UK stores are starting on Boxing Day. You can take advantage of sales in small and large stores across the country. Although it is traditional for stores to close their doors early on the night of the 24th for the holiday, if you walk through the most commercial areas you will probably already see the first “SALES” signs for the 26th. If you want to see what Boxing Day is like, stroll through the most emblematic shopping streets of the British capital such as Oxford Street or Regent Street. Boxing Day offers deep discounts in almost every category, but apparel, electronics, beauty, baby, home and garden products will continue to be the big players. Be sure to arrive early on Boxing Day to get the best deals or enjoy additional discounts on the second sales in mid-January. Remember that department stores are always a safe bet for savvy bargain hunters, because you can find everything in one building.

Recommendations for Boxing Day
