A traditionalist at heart, I like keeping up with the liturgical church calendar. Epiphany, for you non-seminarians like me, is celebrated on January 6 and is said to commemorate the visit of the Wise Men to the Christ child, ending the Twelve Days of Christmas. This photo is from Germany, where they still celebrate the Twelfth Night (Epiphany Eve) by lighting thousands of bonfires.


May the fire of Christ cause your life to glow this year.
