    There is a point there. Some people simply can't complain about working holidays because of their profession. Police, fire and many areas of health care come to mind. Retail does not.
    "He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

    Me neither.

    Wick: Americans don't have Boxing Day, they really don't. When I say Boxing Day down here people look at me like I;m an alien.

    It's a nothing day here, at home it's a Holiday.

    It's really nothing here anymore either. Is it even a paid holiday?

    I think it's a paid day off in Canada. Always has been in the past.

    Well, the point was Boxing Day was a shopping day. Then there were line-ups the night before. Then boxing week became a thing. Now no one cares. Black Friday is on the same trajectory.
