What is Boxing Day?
The day after Christmas Day, December 26, is known as Boxing Day in Britain. It was also known as the Feast of St Stephen, when in olden days church alms-boxes were opened and the contents given to the poor. This custom turned into the giving of Christmas boxes, which were gifts of food, money or other items to household servants and then to public tradesmen, such as postmen and dustmen (garbage collectors). In many parts of Britain these traditions live on, with gifts of food, clothing or money from local churches being given to the poor or needy, and many people still give small gifts to their favorite trades people. Boxing Day is a public holiday in Britain. Banks and most shops

Perhaps Boxing actually refers to all the unboxing we have to do after Christmas day!
