Yes, today is Boxing Day in Canada and in many other places in the world. It has a long history behind the day, some facts from the Middle Ages. However, the data is often obscure or variable but the meaning behind the day is always interesting.
I always enjoy this day. It's always nice to have a day off of work but it's a day to sit and relax after the crazy, whirlwind day of Christmas festivities.
Today I am just taking it easy - if dishes from last night's dinner; washing table cloths, silverware and napkins; scrubbing the sticky whatevers off the kitchen floor; and vacuuming up the ground in cookies, count as "taking it easy".
Tonight I'm going out to a formal ball where you must wear "Christmas colours". I really hope navy counts as a "Christmas colour" because I really like the look of this dress. I love the filmy skirt. I always feel like I'm floating.
The back has such great detail, with the lace insert.
I know the evening will go so quickly that it will just be a blur but I don't get a chance to wear a formal dress that often so I'm knocking myself out to look great. It will be a fun night.
Good night for now.
