On the Christian calendar, The Feast of the Epiphany fall on January 6, 2017 and marks the end of the Christmas period.
Some Christian denominations use the holy day as an opportunity to retell the story of the Three Kings, or Magi, who brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Other denominations focus more on Jesus’ baptism and the start of his ministry.
Christian communities around the world have developed extraordinarily diverse ways of celebrating this feast ― from diving into frigid water to eating a delicious cake in search of a tiny figurine of the baby Jesus.
