December 26: If Mexican Immigrants Can Demand Cinco De Mayo, Why Can’t British (And Canadian, Etc.) Immigrants Demand Boxing Day?

Part of what the French call "The Great Replacement" of the white nations is the imposition of alien celebrations. The most obvious is Cinco de Mayo, lovingly chronicled by here, exposed as a Hannukah-style fake by our Allan Wall here.

In this spirit, I (on behalf my fellow immigrants from Britain and the former British Empire) want to propose the importation of Boxing Day, December 26, the day after Christmas Day, equally recognized with Christmas Day as a public holiday in Britain, Canada, Australia etc. Unlike Cinco De Mayo, this would actually be a useful holiday, for example for the millions of trypotophan-trashed Americans faced with the prospect of struggling back to work after Christmas Day.

In Britain in the 1970s, crippled by high marginal tax-rates before the supply-side revolution, Boxing Day gave the British additional opportunity to trade income for leisure. With any luck, depending on the calendar, they could stop work from Christmas Eve or earlier until the New Year or later, in effect unilaterally reinstating a version of the Twelve Days Of Christmas. 

Of course, it helps that the dark British winter, with super-short days (it’s in the latitude of Labrador) and constant overcast skies, inspires hibernation.

To see how it works, note that Christmas this year falls on a Tuesday, so Boxing Day would be on a Wednesday.  The British would conclude that there’s hardly any point in working on Christmas Eve or for that matter going back to work just for a two-day week (Thursday or Friday).  This means that many will have been off work from Friday December 21 until Tuesday January 2. Indeed, I see that British blogger Robert Henderson (here and here) has suspended his indispensable daily U.K. press clippings email service for precisely this period.

Given that Democrats like Bernie Sanders have obviously forgotten the lessons of the 1970s and propose reimpose high marginal tax rates on income, Americans will need this Boxing Day opportunity too.

Furthermore, it's been obvious since the Supreme Court's cowardly 2007 wimp-out in Skoros that Congress will have to legislate to protect the Historic American Nation's Christmas from its fanatical foes.

Reinforcing Christmas Day—still specified in law as a federal holiday—will bring home that it really is a day "different from all others."

Merry Boxing Day!
