Feast of The Epiphany Books

This is a collection of Epiphany books that we have in our house.  

The Feast of The Epiphany (or Three Kings Day as some may know it), is a beautiful tradition in which the Catholic Church celebrates ::

"Epiphany came to mark the end of Christmastide—the Twelve Days of Christmas (celebrated in the song), which began with the revelation of Christ to Israel in His Birth and ended with the revelation of Christ to the Gentiles at Epiphany."  Link here.






The Feast of The Epiphany is traditionally celebrated on January 6, the twelfth day of Christmas.

In most countries and diocese, the feast is transferred to the Sunday between January 2 and January 8.  For 2017, it will be transferred to Sunday, January 8.  (My family still celebrates it on the traditional date of January 6 as the twelfth day of Christmas and then again on the transferred date for the year.)


Merry Christmas!
