Why is it called Boxing Day?

“Employers used to give presents to servants on Christmas Day. But because they were working, they would open those gifts – presented in boxes – the following day, giving Boxing Day its name. Another theory is that the name comes from boxes left in churches filled with coins that would be distributed to the poor on Boxing Day.”
