“Today is the last day of Christmas, also known as Epiphany. (Okay, now if you don’t take your tree and decorations down you are a slacker!
Epiphany means 'to show', 'to make known' or 'to reveal'. The Christian feast of Epiphany commemorates the mysterious visitors who came to the Christ child. Their gifts revealed Jesus as Lord and King for the whole world, not just the Jewish nation.
The story of the visitors is only found in Matthew's Gospel (Chapter 2:1-12). It doesn't tell us how many there were! The word used for the visitors has been translated as Magi, wise men, kings or astrologers.
The visitors brought gifts which symbolized Jesus' identity: precious gold, linked with kingship; frankincense, a fragrant resin linked with divinity and holiness; myrrh - another resin with a bitter perfume, associated with suffering and mourning.” ~ from The Church of England at http://www.going4growth.com/growth_through_the_year/epiphany
