January 5th – the Last Day of Christmas

January 5  is considered throughout the world and throughout Christianity, to be the  last day of Christmas.  I’ve heard DAILY since December 26th that “Christmas is over” but as I sit here it is the night before the 12th and final day of Christmas as Biblical history tells us that Epiphany January 6, the day celebrating the arrival of the Magi,  Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, who followed the star to reach the Christ child and brought Him gifts, begins the new season. 

The Magi were the first Gentiles to see the newborn King and thus the  word “Epiphany” means “to show” or “to make known” which is exactly what happened on that day as Jesus was indeed revealed to the world.
