What is Epiphany Day?
Epiphany Day is celebrated as one of the major feast days in the Christian world. The word epiphany comes from Greek, meaning manifestation or appearance, derived from the verb meaning “to appear”. It is also known as the “Three Kings’ Day”, which takes place on January the 6th (on the 12th Day of Christmas) and it is commemorated as a major event for Christians in Spain and Latin America. It celebrates the biblical story of the three Magi’s (three kings or wise men) led by a star, visit to the newborn Jesus. The gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh carried by these three Magi reflect exotic, precious, sensory riches fit for a king.
What are Some of the Epiphany Day Customs?
Epiphany singing, chalking the doors, having one’s house blessed, eating Three Kings’ Cake, winter swimming, and attending church services can be listed among the traditional Epiphany Day customs. Parades of decorative floats are held on the night before and the day of the festival, where people are dressed up as kings carry presents. Epiphany Day is also a fun celebration event for children in Latino communities. While enjoying the delicious Three Kings’ Cake, children try to find the hidden treasure in the cake, making this both a fun and exciting activity for them.
Epiphany Day Flowers
White is the liturgical color for Epiphany. However, flowers with a warm color palette, such as yellow lilies or roses also form a suitable combination for the Epiphany Day celebration arrangements. Golden flowers remind the gift of gold of the three Magi and they contrast beautifully with white tones, which also represent the bright star of Bethlehem, or Christmas Star, which appeared in the eastern sky when Jesus was born, showing the way and leading the three wise men to the baby Jesus.
