Boxing Day

In Canada, Boxing Day is primarily known as a shopping holiday, much as the United States treats the Friday after Thanksgiving.

For the second year in a row, my neighbor Mary and I headed downtown to the Eaton Centre to experience the insanity that is Boxing Day in Toronto's largest mall.

We left at 11:00 am and took the subway down to Queen Station. We walked along the street looking at the beautiful window displays at The Bay. We then headed back inside and had lunch on the top floor of The Bay looking over old City Hall and watching the skaters at Nathan Phillips Square.

Now fortified, we heading into the Eaton Centre and walked through the enormous crowds from one end to another. We made one stop at the Swarovski Tree and the store to drool over the bling. We also popped into Reitmans to see if there were any good deals. And there weren't really.

We were home by 3:00. Not too bad. Spent the rest of the knitting and watching Daniel Craig in Casino Royale.
