Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have some to worship Him.” Matthew 2:1-2

Many Eastern Christians, as well as some Western believers, celebrate Epiphany today-a holiday which commemorates two events in the life of Jesus, both of which center around His divinity: the day the Wise Men visited the newborn king in Bethlehem and the day John the Baptist baptized Jesus.

According to timeanddate.com, “In some European countries, such as the Czech Republic and Slovakia, children dress as the three kings and visit houses. In their roles as the kings, or wise men, they sing about the (day of) Jesus’ birth and pay homage to the ‘king of kings.’ They are rewarded with praise and cookies.”

In Poland, Christians celebrate “Three Kings Day” with parades across the country. Some liturgical traditions in the West use specific prayers you can find online that would be a great addition to your family’s celebration this year.

However you choose to celebrate, do so heralding the revelation of God to man, who stooped to our level by appearing in the flesh to save us. Contemplate that marvelous truth today.
