Certainly St Stephen's day is a fixed date of 26th December. I thought Boxing Day was always the 26th. The origins of the name have a number of [Urban Legends]? associated but the tradition of giving to servants is an accepted fact. Because in older days there were no holidays particularly for servants I suggest that Boxing Day is actually a fixed date. Rjstott

Boxing Day itself is on a fixed day, but -- if the 26th is on a weekend -- the public holiday for it occurs on the first working day following the 26th. A bit of a fine distinction, but that's how it works here in Canada, anyway. -- Paul Drye

That's how it is in the UK too. I'll edit the article. -- Derek Ross
