Boxing Day is a public holiday that is celebrated on the first day after Christmas Day … it’s essentially Black Friday for the British and Canadians. For those of us who missed out on Black Friday deals or didn’t make it across the border, Boxing Day is the next best thing.
I had decided against hitting the shops for Boxing Day until I remembered that there were a couple of things I needed to pick up, and oddly all of the stores in my city are closed today, opening tomorrow for Boxing “Week” sales. Hmmm … has Boxing Day now turned into Boxing Week?
Boxing Day deals are quite abundant this week, but travel pickings are slim. I’ve rounded up 10 of the best travel deals floating around. Some of the offers are only good for a couple of days while the rest are running throughout the week. If you’re looking to book a trip, the time is most definitely now! Don’t wait until February or March to book for spring break as the pickings will be very slim!
