Actually it should be an “infusion” instead of a “transfusion” but it doesn’t really matter as long as it gets the job done.  Someone is gonna be sleeping good tonight.

Epiphany in the United States

Epiphany, commonly known as Three Kings’ Day in the United States, is on January 6. It celebrates the three wise men’s visit to baby Jesus and also remembers his baptism, according to the Christian Bible’s events….

Epiphany is one of the oldest Christian feasts. It was celebrated since the end of the second century, before the Christmas holiday was established. It is commonly known as Twelfth Night, Twelfth Day, or the Feast of Epiphany. It means “manifestation” or “showing forth”. It is also called Theophany (“manifestation of God”), especially by Eastern Christians. Epiphany also refers to the church season that follows the day.

It commemorates the first two occasions on which Jesus’ divinity, according to Christian belief, was manifested: when the three kings visited infant Jesus in Bethlehem, and when John the Baptist baptized him in the River Jordan. The Roman Catholic and Protestant churches emphasize the visit of the Magi when they celebrate the Epiphany. The Eastern Orthodox churches focus on Jesus’ baptism.

Although it is not a public holiday in other parts of the United States, many Christians take part in Epiphany activities such as:

  • Star processionals on the Sunday closest to January 6 for church services
  • Parties or get-togethers to clean up homes after the festive season and put away Christmas decorations.
  • Treasure hunts to find a figure of the Christ child.
  • Epiphany luncheons, parties and celebrations among churchgoers.
  • And Sunday school activities for children that focus on Epiphany, such as creating the star that led the wise men to Bethlehem. 

Epiphany marks the beginning of the Mardi Gras season in Louisiana. It is customary to bake king cakes during this time of the year. These cakes may include a small trinket (such as a baby doll) inside. The person who gets the piece of cake with the trinket receives various privileges or obligations. For example, they may be requested to provide the next king cake. The interval between Epiphany and Mardi Gras is sometimes known as “king cake season”.

For me, I take down my Christmas Decorations and celebrate with cake and sweets!
