Today Sunday January 6th is EPIPHANY! This is the day in the Western Church when we celebrate the arrival of the "Wise Men" and end the Christmas season.

Today is also Christmas in the Eastern Church, actually it was at one time Christmas in the whole church but Rome changed it to December 25th to coincide with the Winter solstice celebrations in Rome. They could not get rid of the pagan celebration so they changed the meaning of the day and changed January 6th to Epiphany and the coming of the wise men to see Jesus.

So Happy Epiphany to my western friends and Merry Christmas to my eastern friends.
