Today is The Feast of the Epiphany. According to a web-page on Holiday Insights, "Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar were the three kings (also known as the Three Wise Men) who saw the star over Bethlehem when Christ was born. They followed it to find the Christ child on January 6th. They brought the Christ child gold, frankincense and myrrh." — And they did it without mobile phones, contrary to what the cartoon atop this entry suggests.
Last year in honor of The Feast of the Three Kings (Epiphany), I attended a parade, which has been an annual event in NYC for forty-one years, but it was the first time I'd ever seen it since I moved to Manhattan in the 1980's.
I wrote about the experience in a 2017 blog post, which you may reference by clicking here. I was truly fortunate to have seen it, because this year, the event was cancelled, due to the weather conditions which were brought on by the "bomb cyclone," that hit the city this past Thursday.
