    Boxing day is a day Christmas in England. In the old days, servants, shopkeepers and other people performed a service for the rich used to come to their houses. They came a box and they were given presents and sometimes money. The custom still exists in a with milkmen, postmen, newspaperboys and dustmen. On each boxing day, a lot of English children are taken to a pantomime or a circus; a pantomime is a kind of comedy based on a well-known fairy story or folk-tales as 'Cinderella'; there is usually a 'principal boy' hero, a 'Dame', a villain, and many other actors. The audience is often asked to join and children love it. They sing popular songs, hiss or boo the villain and try to warn the hero or the dame something bad is going to happen. Of course, all pantomimes a happy ending.
