Boxing Day

I travel to the USA frequently and have been asked where the Canadian tradition of boxing day started.
Can anyone give me a good answer? I have a few, but I'm not sure if they are true answers.

I have heard that it started when the rich gave boxed presents to their servants. I also heard that it evolved into a day when neighbours would gather bringing food for pot luck suppers in boxes.

Well???
