Epiphany is a Christian feast day celebrated on January 6. The holiday commemorates the revelation of JESUS’ divinity to those around him.

Over the centuries European folklore has assigned numerous legends and customs to Epiphany some of which bear little direct relationship to the life of Jesus. In many countries Epiphany marks the end of the CHRISTMAS SEASON.
