Boxing Day in
Days to go:
Boxing Day is a public holiday in many countries. Though it originally started as a day when people gave boxed gifts to their employees or the less fortunate, today it is a day spent with family and friends, either relaxing or engaging in recreational activities. In many parts of the world, it is also a day for shopping, as businesses offer sales and discounts.
In Nigeria, Boxing Day has a rich history that can be traced back to the years of British colonial rule. As a former British colony, Nigeria inherited several British customs and traditions, including the observance of Boxing Day. For Nigerians, the day is seen as an extension of the Christmas celebrations, giving them more time to spend with family and friends, visit places of interest, and partake in various festive activities.
On Boxing Day in Nigeria, people engage in various activities such as attending sporting events, music concerts, and visiting recreational centers.
