    Up here in Canada, the day after Christmas is known as "Boxing Day", and it is undoubtedly the busiest shopping day of the year as stores hold their best sales of the year. And this, of course, including sales on DVDs. Here are some examples from just one B&M store (in US dollars): Jurassic Park III - $11.48; Shrek - $10.24; Swordfish - $8.56; Matrix: Revisited - $6.08. Are there comparable sales south of the border (or in other parts of the world)?
