So, who gets Boxing Day off?
So why is this one extra day off so amazing?
You don't have to leave your nice warm bed.
The weather outside may be frightful, but nothing is forcing you to go out!
You don't have to go into work with a post-Christmas hangover.
Napping is interrupted only by the consumption of chocolate.
You can still dance around to Christmas music. It's not too late for that!
Though you should try not to rub it in your American friends' faces.
Eating left over Christmas dinner could possibly be the best thing ever.
But it's just so exciting to watch disgusting amounts of Netflix.
Shopping online for all the specials makes your day even better!
You don't even have to change out of your PJ's!
You try to forget that you have to go to work the following day.
So for now you'll just enjoy spending time at home annoying your family members.
Or spending time in with your significant other.
The next morning you try to pump yourself up to go back to work...
...but you can't seem to force yourself to be productive.
You're exhausted and you've accomplished nothing.
