The Day After Christmas
I think Christmas has a problem. You look forward to it for a whole month, then it's one day, and it's over. And actually it's really like half a day because once you reach the evening this malaise sets in, it's kind of sad, it's over!
I think the day after christmas needs to be something special, so that you can look forward to that too. And two days of specialness is just about right, and you won't be sad as the day after christmas comes to a close, it'll seem like the right time to get back into your normal life.
So what should it be? I'm fielding ideas.

Too boring. We need something better.

I agree totally! I have always wondered why we sing about the 12 days of Christmas, but only celebrate one. I mean, having even more than just one day--like a week, for instance--would make it so much easier for families. We wouldn't have to choose where to be on just one small window of time--we could split it up between all family and even friends that are special, too. That would be truly awesome. The British do have Boxing day...Maybe we could just extend Christmas...?

good idea! How about new years?

No, it needs to be the day after christmas. Boxer Day is just christmas where you give presents to family and friends.
I think it should be a day where you decide 3 resolutions, and do 3 concrete things to start towards those resolutions. So let's say your resolutions are to lose weight, be nicer, and learn to play guitar. On this day you would work out, write someone a nice note, and buy a chord book. Or something like that.

would that be good for kids though?

of course it would! it would be better than getting them presents even.

I like the idea, but you aren't going to convince me that kids would like working out and writing a letter better than getting presents.
