A Day for Marriages and not for boxing


A busy day for Marriages instead of Boxing Day (post-Christmas Day) – we had one Marriage Registration and one Marriage Reception Dinner on Saturday, December 26, 2015.
The Marriage Registration of Vincent Ooi Yin Chong and Ho Cher Ling was held at Che Hoon Khor Moral Uplifting Society Penang. A big delegation of friends, relatives and parents were on hand to lend support and give moral support to the newly weds. Heartiest congratulations.

The Marriage Reception Dinner of Ong Yu Shin (Son of Mr & Mrs Ong Ban Seang – my Penang Free School class-mate) and Evon Goh (daughter of Mr & Mrs Albert Goh Hua Tong) was held at Pelangi Ballroom, Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa Penang, Batu Ferringhi, Penang. Driving up to Batu Ferrighi was quite time-consuming owing to the bumper-to-bumper traffic jam starting at Tanjung Tokong until the hotel. There was a function at the Floating Mosque at Tanjung Bungah on that night.

From Wikipedia:-

Boxing Day is a holiday traditionally celebrated the weekday or Saturday following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a “Christmas box”, from their masters, employers or customers, in the United Kingdom, The Bahamas, Barbados, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Bermuda, New Zealand, Kenya, South Africa, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and other former British colonies. Today, Boxing Day is the bank holiday or public holiday that generally takes place on 26 or 27 December.

In South Africa, Boxing Day was renamed Day of Goodwill in 1994. In the liturgical kalendar of Western Christianity, the day is dedicated to St. Stephen, so is known as St. Stephen’s Day to Christians (especially Anglicans, Lutherans and Roman Catholics), and to the population generally in Italy, Ireland, Finland, Alsace and Moselle in France. It is also known as both St. Stephen’s Day and the Day of the Wren or Wren Day in Ireland. In some European countries, most notably Germany, Poland, the Netherlands and those in Scandinavia, 26 December is celebrated as the Second Christmas Day.
