Epiphany - 6th January

Epiphany 6th January
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epiphany_(Christian)



Imaginative floats, sweets, acrobats and animals, those were the elements of the Three King's parade in central Madrid on Sunday (January 5) where children and adults alike celebrated the eve of the Epiphany trying to collect as many sweets as possible.
The Epiphany, so the story goes, marks the day when the three wise men arrived in Bethlehem presenting Jesus with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, on January 6, 12 days after Christmas. There was no gold, frankincense or myrrh on Sunday evening, but there were plenty of sweets thrown from the floats onto the crowds sending children into a frenzy of excitement.



Slideshow of the Epiphany song "We Three Kings of Orient Are" sung by Jennifer Avalon, accompanied by the lyrics (in English). Both the lyrics and the music were written by John Henry Hopkins, Jr. circa 1857, then an ordained deacon in the Episcopal Church

The song tells the story of the Magi (found in Matthew 2) travelling to visit to the Christ Child, guided only by the Star of Bethlehem.
