The gifts of the Magi...

We celebrated the Epiphany on January 2nd cutting short the 12 days of Christmas.  It just happen to fall a little early this year on the Gregorian/Liturgical Calendar.

 
Balthassar, Melchior, Gaspar
The Three Kings

Frankincense, Myrrh and a gold coin were presented to the Holy Family.

A small silver box containing Balthassar, Melchior and Gaspar was placed on our family's altar symbolising the Magi's visit.

Chocolate coins and a small token gift were given to Brase to commemorate the Three Kings and our family's annual tradition.
