Boxing Day / St Stephen's Day / the Day after Christmas Day Div

Hope one and all had a wonderful Christmas ……. now on to the New Year.
My favorite "carol" of the season ……. and a fun version by The Irish Rovers.

And pay heed to the closing stanza:

Therefore, Christian men, be sure, wealth or rank possessing,
You who now will bless the poor shall yourselves find blessing.
