Epiphany The first Sunday after the New Year.

Today is Epiphany which is a day that France remembers the days the Kings arrived in Bethlehem.    

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

Lord we Pray that all of France will come to worship the King of King once more.  Amen

Some of the traditions that happen in France on this day.  The wise men are moved into the creche, and the Galette Des Rois (King'sCake)  is served and the person who has the piece with the baby or prize is king or queen for the day.
