Boxing Day

Is there such a thing in France - ie, is it a public holiday? We are arriving for a few days on Boxing Day and just wanting to know whether there'll be shops open to buy food or whether we should bring our dinner with us! In point of fact, will there be much open in the week between Christmas and New Year as a whole?

Christmas day is a low key family affair in this area.
Some bakeries are open - French need their  fresh bagettes daily.
Boxing day is not a holiday and most shops are open as usual.
