Can you believe it’s almost 2022?! We’re still in shock ourselves, but we’re getting ready to ring in the new year and making sure we have a list of celebration-worthy events on the calendar in January. Scroll down to see what we’re looking forward to next month and how we’re using PicCollage to commemorate special days!
Three Kings Day – January 6th
Celebrated annually on January 6th, Three Kings Day is a Christian feast day that is also known as Epiphany and Theophany. Epiphany is celebrated by both the Eastern and Western Churches, but there is a difference in which events the feast commemorates. For Western Christians, it celebrates the coming of the Magi, while in Eastern churches it commemorates the Baptism of Christ in the Jordan. Tap below to check out our Three Kings Day templates!
