When is Epiphany?

Epiphany is the celebration of God revealing Himself as the person Jesus Christ. The day is also knows as Three Kings Day, Little Christmas, Blackmen's Christmas, and King's Day. In some places, this holiday is more significant than Christmas.

Epiphany is always celebrated on January 6th. However, while the Western Churches use the modern Gregorian Calendar, the Eastern Churches tend to use the older Julian Calendar.

January 6th on the Julian calendar is January 19th on the Gregorian.
