Epiphany!

It can mean revelation, inspiration, insight – that moment when you realize what’s going on.  For Christians, it has another meaning.  It’s the manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi.  Today is when we celebrate Epiphany – also called Three Kings Day or Twelfth Night (the twelfth night after Christmas) or Little Christmas.

Some people mark the day by having the Three Kings (or other entities) visit and leave presents for the kids.  Other people have house blessings or perform baptisms.  There are a host of other things associated with Epiphany.  However… it’s basically the end of the Christmas season – Epiphany season begins.

My socks this Friday were a Christmas gift from my brother.  They’re bright and colorful, so I felt that they were fitting for such a day.
