Epiphany, or in Sweden, a Day Off

Today is Epiphany. Not the epiphany you have when you realize something (although the meaning is derived from the holiday) but the holiday. Basically January 6th ends the Twelve Days of Christmas and is celebrated when the Magi visits Christ. In Eastern Christian traditions, Epiphany is celebrated as Jesus Christ being baptized in the Jordan River by St. John the Baptist.

In Sweden, Epiphany is called Trettondagen in swedish. It is also an official red day in the country so all companies are off.

As for me, I’ll celebrate this holiday that we have a day off and can sleep in and watch tv. Bless!

  1. Spent mine skiing in Marcus’ godparents’ backyard, and coming in to the warmth of the fireplace and those thick country-style potato chips. Love ’em!

    I added you to my blogroll! Cheers!

  2. Teehee Jen, exactly!

    Joy, that sounds delicious. Hope you’re not sore from the skiing now. I’ve added you to my blogroll too! Thank you!
