Things to do This Day of Goodwill

Relax with the family or spend the day on the beach in Cape Town on this South African Public Holiday

Better known to most as Boxing Day – The Day of Goodwill (December 26) is the official South African public holiday that falls on the day after Christmas each year. Renamed by the South African Government in 1994 to sever ties to a colonial past, the holiday was initially created in honour of the time when people in the UK spent their day ‘boxing up’ their lovely Christmas gifts.

An extension of Christmas – or for most, a day to recover from the indulgence of Christmas – the Day of Goodwill is best celebrated with family and friends at the beach, a braai, or simply by practising goodwill unto others and sharing in the South African summer festivities.
