Many of us here in the United States are familiar with The Twelve Days of Christmas, made famous by the catchy song. The Christians among us may know the twelve days as those after December 25th that take us throughThe Feast of the Epiphany – January 6.
The Feast of the Epiphany is celebrated by Catholics and many Christians as the day the three kings (or wise men) reached the birth place of the baby Jesus. They brought with them wondrous gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. This is one of the reasons we exchange presents on Christmas morning.
