I feel bad for the Americans in that they were never blessed to discover and relish ‘Boxing Day‘. It is a wonderful British Holiday, day to chill-out after Christmas and enjoy some sporting action. And IF you are a true Brit there is nothing better than a Test match on Boxing day and this year, i.e., 2018, we have TWO: Australia vs India and South Africa vs Pakistan. I will be watching both of them. Given that Australia is 12-hours ahead of us, I plan to start watching the Australia vs India Test shortly.
Enjoy. Make ‘Boxing Day’ a part of your Christmas ritual. You will be better for it.
Happy ‘Boxing Day 2018’.

This is SERIOUS stuff. The Queen without a piper. That is near sacrilegious.
How is that possible. There has to be more to this than they are telling us. No deputy or standby piper.
It isn’t as if OUR GLORIOUS forces are short of a piper or two. I know we have hundreds, if not thousands, within the ranks. Why hasn’t somebody else been drafted in? Very curious.
I am NOT happy. The Queen MUST have a piper. That is so much a part of OUR proud tradition.
Yes, I am fond of Pipers to the Queen. I have been lucky enough to meet TWO.
