Throwback: So Apparently Boxing Day Isn't About Packaging!

Today is Boxing Day in England, Canada, Australia and several other countries around the world. Because we’re spending today celebrating the long Christmas weekend, we’re throwing back to our blog from last year about Boxing Day, which sounds like a day that packaging fans like us would love.

Color us embarrassed. Ernest Packaging Solutions has been thinking that Boxing Day was a day to celebrate the people who store, ship and protect your cargo with expertly designed packages.

We figured it was always the day after Christmas because that is when everyone is preparing to box up their Holiday decorations, boxing up leftovers and watching as kids play in the boxes that their expensive toys were packaged in.

Apparently, the holiday has more to do with the boxes of gifts that servants and household attendants would get from their employers the day after Christmas in jolly old England.

Well, we’re not buying it.

To us, every day is Boxing Day, or as we are going to rename it, Packaging Day. So on this Packaging Day, celebrate by taking time to notice all of the ways we package our world and the talented people who make it work.

Every member of the Ernest Packaging Solutions nationwide family sees packaging as something special, something to be honored. This is why we create such amazing customer solutions for our partners.
