Epiphany

Reveille UMC
Epiphany comes from the Greek word epiphania, which means "manifestation." Celebration of Ephipany of the Lord is even more ancient among Christians than Christmas. The celebration originally focused on the nativity, incarnation, and baptism of Jesus Christ. Today we celebrate the coming of the three wise men, who brought gifts to the Christ child. It is observed on January 6 or the first Sunday in January and is also known as Twelfth Night or Dia de Los Reyes. Epiphany marks the end of the Christmas cycle, which began on the First Sunday of Advent.
