Happy Boxing Day! This holiday originated in the United Kingdom as a tradition for employers to give gifts (or cash) to employees or the less fortunate. I think it could be a fun tradition to volunteer or donate to a good cause on this day.
My Boxing Day tradition includes some sort of outdoor exercise (hiking, walking, running, golfing, or climbing to the top of the Eiffel Tower). I always enjoy some exercise to burn off all the food I eat on Christmas day. Since I grew up in Southern California, my family and I went hiking in the local mountains every year.
This year, I went for a nice walk / jog in a beautiful park in the suburbs of Paris. The park is called Parc de la Vallée-aux-Loups (or the Valley of Wolves Park). It’s not well-known because it’s located in the suburbs of Paris, but the very determined can reach the park from the city via public transportation. If you want to read about it in English, click here for a short explanation. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our afternoon in the park:
