Today, January 6, is Epiphany, also known as Three Kings’ Day,

a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God in his Son as human in Jesus Christ. In Western Christianity, the feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ child, and thus Jesus’ physical manifestation to the Gentiles. (via Wikipedia)

In honor of the occasion, here is T.S. Eliot reading his brief poem “The Journey of the Magi”
