The Epiphany

Today is the Feast of the Epiphany, the Church Holy Day that particularly commemorates the coming of the Magi, or Three Wise Men. I have blogged on the meaning and history of the Three Wise Men before here and here.

This Epiphany on the Northern Plains, we are not so much looking for a Star in the East, as we are snow from any direction. It got up to 60 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday, which is downright creepy for South Dakota in early January. Usually we are lucky if we do not have a foot of snow nor having wind chills of -60. (For my Fahrenheit handicapped British readers, a -60 F wind chill would be a wind chill of -50 C.)

Instead of rehashing what I have previously discussed on this blog, I simply wish everyone a Happy Epiphany and will let of art of the Church tell the story of the Epiphany.
