2023: Boxing Day

Boxing Day, also referred to as Offering Day, is a holiday celebrated the day after Christmas (December 25). This annual holiday is significant with giving gifts to people in need, shopping at boxing day sales, and continuing the Christmas celebrations from the previous day.

Boxing Day also falls on the same day as Saint Stephen’s Day, a Christian holiday that celebrates the first martyr in Christian history. A martyr is someone who was persecuted and killed for their faith, and in 36 AD, Saint Stephen was stoned to death for his proclamation of the Gospel.

Boxing Day reportedly originated in the United Kingdom and is marked as a public holiday by several countries in the world including Nigeria, USA, Gambia, etc. From everyone at Incognito Blog, we wish you a splendid Boxing Day celebration.
