Do you celebrate Epiphany, the Feast of the Three Kings? If so how do you celebrate it? I know that in many countries it is celebrated with great gusto but I do not live in a country where that is an important celebration... In fact, it seems as if no one celebrates it at all here in the U.S. I have some friends who will not be able to be with me for Christmas as they are going out of town. I am thinking about keeping up my Christmas decorations until the Epiphany, having my friends over to my home and exchanging gifts then. I am wondering what activities, foods, drinks, greetings, etc. are appropriate for that type of celebration.

yes the feast of the three kings is celebrated here in India by the christians.I dont know what actually they do ,however i heard that they do celebrate it. They hold candles in their hands and go down the streets singing the prayers ,going to the church early at 4 am every morning before christmas Eve.

Ah, I understand that... Here in the States I know that there are Christians who like to watch Hindu Festivals... and Hindus who like to watch Christian celebrations. It is fun to watch and to learn from people of other faiths and cultures.
