The Epiphany of Our Lord is celebrated on January 6th, marking the end of the Christmas Season, and is the 12th day of Christmas. The word ‘epiphany’ comes from the Greek word ‘epiphainen’ meaning ‘shine upon’, ‘to manifest’ or to ‘make known’. Jesus was ‘made known’ to the gentiles for the first time with the visitation of the three Wise Men or Magi. In many parts of Europe, the exchanging of gifts occurs on the Epiphany; the day the gifts were presented to the baby Jesus by the visiting Magi.
