Our homes should reflect some differences on Epiphany, especially the Christmas Crib. The figures of the Three Wise Men figure prominently on this day. Other suggestions is adding some gold and red to the crib scene or the Christ Child, perhaps crowning the Christ Child.

DIRECTIONS

On Epiphany the figures of the three Wise Men are placed by the crib. In many places the figures of the Wise Men are placed at some distance from the crib either on or soon after Christmas and moved progressively closer each day. If you do not have the necessary figures, you might allow the children to cut out some figures of kings and camels from Christmas cards and set them up. If the children are allowed to do this, the feast will have special meaning for them, because they will feel that they have added materially to the spirit of the day.
