I adore Boxing Day for the mere fact it means the whole schlock of Christmas is OVER.
As a family we used to have a tradition of going to North Beach at Wollongong for a family bbq/day at the beach, which quite frankly was as exciting a prospect for me as dental work without drugs. It was at one of these gatherings that my aunt commented on my rolls of fat to the chortling of the rest of the family. I was 6 I think. 'Nough said.
So this year I was going to do EXACTLY what you did - a brunch type drop-in scenario - complete with ham slices pan fried with maple syrup, pancakes and maybe some sort of fresh fruit concoction.
But my life went to hell for the ENTIRE MONTH OF DECEMBER and I didn't get the chance to even CALL anyone I really wanted to see, let alone extend invitations.
At this stage I'm contemplating a New Years Day brunch as most of our circle of friends gave up staying up to midnight on NYE years ago.

My aunt and uncle throw a fantastic boxing day casual drop-in bash, and I was very sad to miss it this year.
I wish you'd explain the two sides of the DiViDe to me, as I have no idea what to make of it.
