Happy Three Kings Day!

Today is Three Kings Day! Three Kings Day (or The Epiphany) is a Christian holiday that commemorates the biblical story of the three kings—Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar.

The three kings (also known as the Wise Men or Magi) followed the bright star of Bethlehem to bring gifts to the Christ child.

Celebrating the day upon which the three kings arrived at Bethlehem, Three Kings Dayis twelve days after Christmas day, and marks the end of the Christmas period.

Traditionally, this is the day when all Christmas trees and decorations are taken down. 

Happy Three Kings Day!
