Epiphany (Three Kings Day)

Epiphany, or Theophany, meaning "vision of God", is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. 

Western Christians commemorate principally the visitation of the Biblical Magi to the Baby Jesus, and thus Jesus' physical manifestation to the Gentiles. The holiday is known as the Three Kings Day. 

Eastern Christians commemorate the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River, seen as his manifestation to the world as the Son of God.
