December 27Th I think!

Boxing day is always the 26th of december

It's the day after christmas, same as usual. What you need to ask is, is monday a bank holiday

It's bank holiday on Monday due to the fact boxing day falls on a Saturday.

It is on the Monday. My local bus service is still running a busy service on the Saturday but it isn't like a normal saturday one. My OH is getting bank holiday payment at work for the Monday but not on the Saturday.

Boxing day is day after xmas.

The bank holiday will fall on the Monday

It's the 26th of December as always, I was arguing about this with my Nan at the weekend apparently it will fall on the 27th this year! but I still think it will fall on the 26th! confusing

Edit: Boxing Day in the Commonwealth of Nations except when 26 December is a Sunday Boxing Day is transferred to 27 December by Royal Proclamation.

ha ha?

If December the 25th was on a Saturday, would you be asking if Christmas … If December the 25th was on a Saturday, would you be asking if Christmas day was on the Monday? :w00t:

"When is boxing day this year in the uk?"

Actually OP does have a 'sort-of' valid point because some councils in London are treating the Monday as Boxing Day and parking is free (as it is free on Xmas day and Boxing day) but others are treating it as a Bank Holiday and charging. It was on London tonight a few days ago and the advice was to be extra careful where you park or you could be fined.

april fools!

on a serious note when is xmas next year cos its on the saturday that must mean its actually the 25th on the monday?

Yes, When is boxing day! And the answer remains the same.:thumbsup:

Didn't you know?? Boxing day has been cancelled this year!

Actually if you read the whole post which asked about travel arrangements it is a vaild question. Even if it could have been phrased a little better.

As someone said earlier different councils are treating boxing day differently. Some are saying is a normal Saturday as the Monday is when the bank holiday falls so travel timetables and car park charging is enforced where as others are saying it is a public holiday and therefore reduced services and free parking is available. Best to check online about where you want to go.
