Today, January 7, 2018, is the Epiphany. For much of the Christian church it is a day of gift giving because it is the day the Three Kings wound up in Bethlehem with their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
It is usually thought of as the 12th day after the birth of Jesus. Some churches celebrate it the first Sunday after the 12th day of Christmas. This year, in the Roman Catholic church, Epiphany Sunday, is celebrated today.
Epiphany is a feast that celebrates internationalism. We are reminded that Jesus came for all people from all nations and all classes. This meaning of the feast is something that is badly needed in our current values of xenophobia and "me first" trumpeted by Trumpism in the U.S.
