Why is the footer placed before the closing of the body tag and not after?
please enlighten me...

The <body> tag is generally reserved for visible content on the page whereas <head> tag is used for metadata attributes (like title, fonts, styles...). Since the footer is a visible piece of your site, it should go within the body. Although, as far as I know, browsers will probably show it regardless of whether it's in or out of the <body>. Keep in mind that <header> also goes in the <body>...
