Day of Epiphany
today is traditionally the day that is celebrated as being the day that the wisemen found the baby Jesus. i remember that the amish kids always got out of school this day because they regarded it as a holiday. i just don't understand why this day is believed to be that. why would anybody think it was twelve days. i just don't get it. i like how most nativity scenes show the three wisemen even though technically they would not be there. nursemom always had the wisemen out of the manger as if still traveling, following the star. anyway, just don't get it. why twelve days of christmas? why would mary and joseph stay in the manger all that time. surely the taxing would have been done within a week. even if not people who had been taxed could have left, thereby leaving vacant inn rooms making it possible for mary and joseph to move into one of those. the wisemen would come to the inn instead of the stable. anyway, i'm starting to ramble, so i had better close this blog.
