Epifania Ortodossa
Domenica 20 Gennaio 2016
(la data cambia a seconda dell'anno)
*A Christian holiday (from the Greek word epiphaneia meaning manifestation or to appear) commemorating the presentation of the infant Jesus to the Magi, or three wise men. It marks the end of the twelve days of Christmas and is also called "The Adoration of the Magi" or "The Manifestation of God". According to legend based on a Bible story, three kings (or wise men/magi), Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar saw a bright star on the night that Christ was born. They followed the star to Bethlehem where they found the baby Jesus and presented him with gold, frankincense and myrrh.
