The Epiphany

Well, sort of.

Intellectually I still hold that the feast of the Epiphany is January 6, keeping the twelve days of Christmas. But liturgically, I understand that in the US and Australia the feast has been moved to the nearest Sunday, to “allow all the faithful to participate in this feast.”
Three wise men
magi from the east
brought presents.

Gold = for kingship. Frankincense = for priesthood. Myrrh = for burial.

We always share gold foil covered chocolate coins on this day.
