Boxing Day is especially common in the UK and in countries that were once part of the British Empire. The name boxing comes from the word "boxing" - packaging, after the holiday gift packaging.
The origin of the holiday is in Britain, at a time when the servants would work throughout the Christmas in the service of the nobles, prepare and serve them the meals, clean after them, etc.), and only a day after Christmas would they receive leave and gifts from the masters.
