Boxing Day and Munich....

What does one do to send best wishes on Boxing Day to friends in the UK? Is it "happy" or "merry" of "prosperous" or just plain "good" Boxing Day?

Whichever it may be, my best to my UK and Northern Irish friends on this day-after-your-Christmas holiday..... (and in response to friend Ciaran's comment, happy St Stephen's Day...)

Besides the holiday, I was reminded of the UK -- and Northern Ireland specifically -- by today's New England weather -- which has been rainy and foggy and hovering in the 40s and 50s (F that is) the past few days.

As important has been seeing the movie Munich, which has Ciaran Hinds (friend Bronagh's brother) doing a more than credible job at playing an Israeli agent engaged in the post-Munich counter-terror squad supposedly established to extract vengeance on Black September. Whatever problems there are with its veracity (it turns out to be based on highly contested account of what really occurred), Even without that Northern Ireland connection, the movie had enough to keep my interest -- especially as another candidate for my movie-driven ethics course.
