While the origins of Boxing Day date back to the Middle Ages in Europe, today it is known as a bank holiday that is observed in commonwealth nations like the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada. Boxing Day 2013 occurs on December 26 and is a day well-known for retailers who curtail special deals in hopes of boosting sales.

Much like Black Friday in America, Boxing Day is a day that is mainly known to be dedicated to holiday shopping. However, due to the fact that the event is the day after Christmas, the day is also known to be one with the most returns.

On Boxing Day 2013, the majority of retailers in commonwealth nations offer doorbuster deals and typically open around 5 a.m. Offering huge discounts, the day attracts a multitude of customers and the day becomes a huge sales booster for retailers.
