Action Step #18 – Boxing Day

Boxing Day, in short, was a day designed to make a special effort to recognize the efforts of people who provide services to you throughout the year. While not celebrated specifically in America, because we are usually too busy taking back gifts, it might be a good idea to honor the spirit of that day. You can honor it by remembering some of the people who have provided service to you throughout the year with a special gift of some type: money, something sentimental or anything that would let them know that you appreciate them.

At the same time, not all gifts need to be financial. As you are waiting in line to return your gifts, don’t gripe about the wait, spend some time talking to the people in line with you. When you get to the counter, be appreciative of the person working there and let them know that you care about them. (And really care about them.) Not taking back any gifts, GREAT! If you are out and about, put your courteous face on and show appreciation for anyone working in the area. They’ve just gone through the Christmas rush and can really use a kind word. Enjoy the day and make these attitudes lifetime attitudes.
