Another name for Boxing Day is known as St Stephen's Day and is named after him as he was the first person to be killed for his belief in Jesus and his teachings. This day is commemorated in the memory of his sacrifices for Christ. St Stephen was stoned to death by a mob for teaching and telling people about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The feast of St Stephen is observed on the 26th of December in his honor. These are the various stories about the origin of Boxing Day. The history of Boxing Day is very special and on that basis we celebrate Boxing Day the way we do today.
