Epiphany, what does it mean?

  • a moment of inspiration or realisation
  • the day after twelfth night when we take the Christmas decorations down
  • the 3 kings visiting baby Jesus

3 wise men on camelsMany countries have a day off and various traditions on January 6 to celebrate those men from the East who saw a star and were sure it meant something important. They did not know what they were looking for or where it would be found but they left home and travelled until they met a young child. Somehow they knew Jesus was special so they gave gold (for a king), frankincense (for a god) and myrrh (for a death).
