Epiphany Blessings

Today is Epiphany, also known as Three Kings Day.

Here in Southern California and elsewhere, many families celebrate with a kings' cake, which is sometimes filled with a charm. In some traditions, the person who receives the piece with the charm throws a party on Candlemas, which commemorates the presentation of Jesus in the temple, on February 2nd.

More Epiphany traditions around the world are described here and here.
