Christmas FamilyLife

Boxing day in Andover, Hampshire

Boxing Day is a time to spend with family or friends, usually those not seen on Christmas Day itself.

Boxng day dinner has always been my favourite meal, a Christmas buffet or “leftovers” from Christmas lunch.

In recent times, the day has become linked with many sports. Horse racing is particularly popular with meets all over the country.
