January 6 is Epiphany, ending the 12 days of Christmas and beginning the season that it is also called Epiphany, referring to the revelation (the light coming on) as to who Jesus is. Epiphany celebrates the Wise Men’s pilgrimage to find the Baby Jesus. By extension, it celebrates that Christ is not just for the Jews but for Gentiles too, for the whole world. That is indeed something to celebrate.
