|Christians celebrate Epiphany or "Three Kings Day" on January 6. |
Epiphany is a story about the Three Kings who visited Jesus.
|Balthazar is from Africa. |
Melchior is from Asia.
Caspar is from Europe.
They are the Three Kings.
They are wise men who study stars.
|The Three Kings see a very bright star.|
They follow the star to Bethlehem.
They travel many miles.
The star stops over a house in Bethlehem.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph live in the house.
|The Three Kings meet Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. |
They are very happy!
The Three Kings give Jesus three gifts:
gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
|Today, people give small gifts, eat a special cake, |
or have a Three Kings Day Parade on the Epiphany.
The Three Kings show us that all people can come to Jesus.
