An American Soccer Fan’s Ode to Boxing Day [VIDEO]

boxing day An American Soccer Fans Ode to Boxing Day [VIDEO]

December 26 is Boxing Day, a traditional holiday that is celebrated throughout the British Isles. It’s a national holiday in Great Britain filled with trips to the pub, fox hunting, leftovers from Christmas dinners, plenty of alcohol and — perhaps best of all —  a full schedule of English football.

World Soccer Talk reader Matt Danow and his friend Tom Miale put together a video entitled “Ode To Boxing Day,” which is a holiday tribute to Boxing Day through the eyes of American soccer fans who love watching the Premier League.

Watch the video below:

Hats off to all of the readers who live in America and take Boxing Day off as their own personal holiday in order to watch English soccer. On behalf of everyone here at World Soccer Talk, we want to be the first to wish you a Happy Boxing Day (one day early).
