: St Stephens Day is not generally celebrated in England, it is very much an Irish celebration - I am not sure about north of the border....Miss Katie? Is it Boxing Day or St Stephens Day in Scotland?!
You would be absolutley correct on the Irish connection.....as The Chieftains are unarguably Irish!!
I stand corrected, but would be interested in the history of the celebration.....all i know is from the cut on the aforementioned album (St. Stephen's Day Murders).
