Happy Boxing Day!

I hope it's not symbolism of any kind that, now that it's not Christmas anymore, we've lost the picture of Captain and Mary Marvel helping Santa in the previous post. We'll just hope that the server is back up soon. Until then, experience the true meaning of Boxing Day and be kind to your servants.

In some countries, today is also known as St. Stephen's Day. Although we often sing "Good King Wenceslas" as a Christmas carol, in truth it's a St. Stephen's Day carol:

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen . . .

It also reinforces the true meaning of Boxing Day by reminding us that it pays off to help those less fortunate:

Therefore, Christian men, be sure,
Wealth or rank possessing,
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing.

And who doesn't want to find blessing for yourself? So give to others less fortunate even if it's an act of selfishness yourself.
