Sorry Q, I just came back from work and my eyes are crossed... didn't see that the questions was only for UK citizens...
However, Canada is part of the Commonwealth and as such, we share quite a few holidays with the UK... The Queen of England is also the Head of State in Canada, so ties are still strong for the traditions...

In the UK when we give a christmas pressie, its referred to as your "christmas box"
its traditionally one of the biggest shopping days of the year with shops opening early for the "boxing day" sales.
You get massive bargains if you can be bothered to brave the shops.

I celebrate Penguin Recognition Day every day, and I've actually gotten pretty good at recognizing individual penguins at the zoo.
