Goodbye, Christmas 2010

January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany in the Western Christian tradition, is the date on which the Three Magi, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, visited the infant Jesus bearing their gifts of gold, frankinsence, and myrrh. It's also  the "Twelfth Day of Christmas" and thus signals the end of the Christmas season at which time the Christmas decorations come down and the trees get tossed in the street. See you next time, Gabriel!
