What is Epiphany?

Epiphany

This is one of the most crucial Christian holidays. It shows how God comes to his people and reveals his salvation to the world. The word Epiphany comes from the Greek word "Epiphaneia" which means "Manifestation" or "Appearance". This day falls on the 6th of January of each year or the Sunday that falls between the 2nd and the 8th of January in some countries.

It is an ancient Christian holiday that is of great importance for many reasons. In some areas, the Epiphany celebrates the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist in the River of Jordan as well as the birth of Jesus. In other regions, this day refers to the visit of the the magi (wise men) to the infant Jesus when God revealed Himself to the world through the manifestation of Jesus. The traditional color for Epiphany is white, which signifies holiness, purity and peace.
