Epiphany is a religious holiday where Christians celebrate the Wise Men’s, or Magi’s, visit to baby Jesus – which is the focus of most Western traditions – and the latter’s baptism by John the Baptist – the focus of Eastern traditions. It is one of the oldest and most important festival days of the church and it is considered the Twelfth day of Christmas.
