Red face What is Linux Questions family going to buy on boxing day this year?


I realize that the things that go on sale on Boxing Day are mostly things the sellers could not wait to get rid of during the year, and truly popular and high quality products will mostly hide in the storage or sell at the basically same regular price or maybe a few cents lower.

But...

I might go for Galaxy Note 2 this coming Boxing Day.

I'm trying to guess where you are. The USA readers will be saying "What's Boxing Day?" and the UK ones don't have cents. Canada, Australia?

I'm skeptical about sales and I hate the pandemonium, so I wait until they're over before shopping. I shall spend St Stephen's Day at home, or in a walk along the Thames if the weather's nice. I shall buy a new refrigerator next year, when the current one has celebrated its 40th birthday!

For boxing day I'll probably buy myself some Gouda and some Genever.
Nothing I have my eye on computer/gadget related is likely to be "on sale", sadly.
