Well, it's not very popular outside of the Church. Epiphany always begins after Christmas, all twelve days of it (Christmas is a season for us, not just one day cat_wink) so Three Kings' is always on January 6.
Epiphany's last day is Shrove Tuesday, aka Mardi Gras. After Shrove Tuesday is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the next season, Lent. So Epiphany lasts a bit more than a month.
Ok, so it starts the first day after christmas. It sounds like a Catholic holiday. I'm a Christian, and I never heard of this holiday. Though...I do know about Mardi Gras, lint, and ash wednesday. (Being from Louisiana, hard to NOT know about Mardi Gras. State holiday lol) It sounds interesting though. I never knew there was a set 'day' where the wise men visited. Interesting indeed. <nod nod>
It's just not a popular feast day, I guess cat_neutral Oh yeah, Mardi Gras and Lent are very popular, Lent particularly because of Holy Week, and Mardi Gras because, well, it's Mardi Gras! cat_xd
Of what denomination are you? Not bringing up differences, but I'm guessing the obscure feast days would be more well-known among the Roman Catholic, see.
I was raised Southern Baptist, and I believe mostly that way. I just go non-demoninational in order to avoid most judgments. Yeah, I'm not a big party person, but King Cake is AWESOME!!
Oh, well I guess then it wouldn't be a surprise if you didn't know about Three Kings'. I'm not even sure if Eastern Orthodox celebrates that. Lol I understand, when people ask me I usually just go, "I'm Christian. cat_3nodding" cat_xp
"King Cake"? o.o Now that one I don't know. Who is King Cake?
