Hello Blwyddyn 4!

I've missed you! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year! In the Christmas story, it feels like the three wise men arrive almost immediately after the birth of Jesus. 


In fact it is believed that the wise men arrived some time later. As a result, many Christians around the world celebrate the feast of Epiphany or 'Three Kings Day' on January 6th. For many Christians Epiphany is more important than Christmas day.

 

What does Epiphany mean?

The word Epiphany has two meanings: 

1. A church festival that celebrates the visit of the wise men to Bethlehem to see the Baby Jesus. 

2. A sudden or inspiring revelation. 

 

Who celebrates Epiphany?

Christians all around the world celebrate Epiphany as it is one of the most important days in the Christian calendar. 

 

When is Epiphany celebrated?

Epiphany, also known as 'Three Kings Day' is celebrated on the 6th January every year. 

 

Why is Epiphany celebrated?

Epiphany celebrates three events:

1. The arrival of the Magi (wise men) in Bethlehem to see the baby Jesus. 

2. The baptism of Jesus. 

3. Jesus' first miracle.
