Epiphany (Christian)

Feast day that celebrates the revelation of God the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. Traditional day to commemorate the visitation of the Magi and the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist.


Orthodox Christmas (Christian)

Some Orthodox Churches use the Julian Calendar instead of the Gregorian, and as a result, a 13-day difference is produced. Therefore Christmas follows on January 7th as opposed to December 25th.
