Introduction to Epiphany

Epiphany, also known as Three Kings' Day, is a Christian feast day celebrated on January 6th to commemorate the revelation of God incarnate as Jesus Christ. Traditionally, it marks the visit of the Magi to the Christ child and symbolizes Jesus' physical manifestation to the Gentiles. Many cultures celebrate Epiphany with special services, grand parades, and the sharing of gifts, paralleling the offerings brought by the Magi. Epiphany evokes feelings of awe, revelation, and the joy of discovery as it wraps up the Christmas season.
