Goodnight everyone, and have a gift-giving weekend!


"Epiphany, also known as 'Three Kings Day' and 'Twelfth Day,' is a Christian holiday commemorated on January 6. It falls on the twelfth day after Christmas, and for some denominations signals the conclusion of the twelve days of the Christmas season.
From about.com.

It's Friday night. Time to unwind with our regular Friday night feature on This Just In.

The weekend has finally arrived.

The sun has set.

The evening sky has erupted. 

Let's put controversy and provocative blogs aside for the rest of this work week and smooth our way into Saturday and Sunday.

At our home, our Christmas trees (yes, we have more than one) are still up and still lit.

A wreath is on our front door.

Throughout our neighborhood, Christmas lights, trees and decorations have yet to be put away.

As it should be. The Christmas season is still alive despite what the AM music radio stations, retailers, or municipal garbage collectors might have to say.

In the Christian faith, this Sunday we celebrate the Epiphany.

Tonight, we continue with sounds of the season. I’ll bet some of you have resisted the temptation to put the holiday music away. Good for you!

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.





 




It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold:
"Peace on the earth, goodwill to men
From heavens all gracious King!"
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.












"The Wise Men—not yet called kings—make only a single appearance in Holy Scripture. St. Matthew's Gospel (Mt 2:1-12) tells of their arrival in Jerusalem shortly after the birth of Jesus. They have come seeking the newborn King of the Jews because they had seen his star rise in the East. Herod, the current ruler, knows nothing of an upstart princeling but learns that prophecies place him in Bethlehem. Herod directs the Wise Men to search there for the Child and keep him informed. Following their star, the Wise Men find Jesus with his Mother. They worship him and bestow gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Warned by an angel, they do not reveal the Child's location to jealous Herod but return secretly to their own land."

"These foreigners, the first Gentiles to see the Light, recognize what Herod and the Temple priesthood cannot: the newborn Savior. The wealthy, learned, alien Magi of St. Matthew's Gospel complement the poor, ignorant, local shepherds of St Luke's Gospel. Foreshadowing the universality of the Church, these Gentiles and Jews worship God Incarnate to show that salvation is offered to all men."

That's it for this week.

Goodnight.

Sleep well.

Have a great weekend.

We close with a former Miss America, stripped of her crown, but she still managed to build a successful career.
