Epiphany: Aliens, Gentiles, and Chalk

– Aliens: my favorite nativity scene features a green inflatable alien along with the three magi

– Gentiles: Are you Catholic? Did you know… the real message of Epiphany is about Gentiles? (If you are, or were, Catholic, please consider following the blog at the link: we need more regular participants!)

– Chalk: It’s traditional to mark your door with chalk on Epiphany: this year, it would be 20 + C + M + B + 14. Contemplative Cottage explains why, and tells us about the German tradition of Star Singers that helps to celebrate this feast.

Happy Epiphany!
