Epiphany for the year 2004 is celebrated/ observed on Tuesday, January 6th.

Epiphany also called Three Kings’ Day, Theophany, Denha, Little Christmas, and Baptism of Jesus is celebrated on January 6th each year according to the Gregorian calendar and what most Western Christian Churches follow. Many Eastern Christian Churches will celebrate Epiphany on January 19th because they follow the Julian calendar.

Western Churches celebrate Epiphany with a feast that commemorates the visit of the Magi (Three Kings, or Three Wise Men) to baby Jesus, signifying Jesus’s physical revealing to the Gentiles. In some Western Churches the day starts the liturgical season of Epiphanytide that follows Christmastide and ends on different days depending on the denomination of the Church.

Eastern Churches will celebrate Epiphany by commemorating the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River (Qasr el Yahud West Bank and Al-Maghtas East Bank as location for baptism of Jesus) as the revealing or manifestation of Jesus to the world.

Some countries celebrate Epiphany on the first Sunday after January 1 and in Columbia they celebrate the day on the second Sunday of January.
