Background on Epiphany
Epiphany is one of the oldest Christian feasts. It was celebrated since the end of the second century, before the Christmas holiday was established. It is commonly known as Twelfth Night, Twelfth Day, or the Feast of Epiphany. It means “manifestation” or “showing forth”. It is also called Theophany (“manifestation of God
”), especially by Eastern Christians. Epiphany also refers to the church season that follows the day.
Whatever you call it or however you choose to celebrate this day, just keep in your heart the true meaning! It is the celebration of Baby Jesus. For those of you with children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, godchildren. Love and Cherish them....today and everyday!
