Reply from American A:
Reply from American B, who is a Protestant:
Interestingly, typical Americans have heard the word, ”Epiphany”, but not so many people know what it is.
Ummm... Do you wanna know what “Epiphany” is? Why not?
What is Epiphany?
Epiphany is observed on January 6th to celebrate that the three wise men arrived
from the east to visit the baby Jesus. They regarded him with the highest of
respect, and presented the three gifts (Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh): The
three wise men revealed
Jesus to the world as Lord.
“Epiphany” means "to show", "to make known", or "to reveal." Also,
Epiphany is Christmas Season’s
climax and the Twelve Days of Christmas begin on December 25th through January
5th, one day before Epiphany. The day before Epiphany is the twelfth day of
Christmas*, and is often called Twelfth Night.
* According to Webster’s dictionary, the Twelfth Day is January 6th, Epiphany. Please let us know if you (our reader) know what day the Twelfth day really is. Thanks. Explore America Info contact us.
