Remembering those in need!

December 8th, 2008 at 06:06 pm

Culturally our family celebrated The Epiphany on January 6th. The Epiphany is a Christian festival, observed on January 6, commemorating the manifestation of Christ to the gentiles in the persons of the Magi. As an offering to the Three Wise Men, children filled up a box with hay or grass for the wise men's camels, in return the magi were supposed to leave a gift in gratitude. We were very poor so I can still recall not getting anything, but making up stories about all the so called stuff Ihad gotten. It was so painful, so very painful.

Eventually things got a little better for our family once my dad scrounge up some money to get an apartment and send for us to come to the the United States. My father tried so hard to make up for those years. I promised myself that every year I would buy a gift for a needy child, because every child deserves to have a gift under the Christmas tree. So please if you can, find a needy family in your community and ask what you can do to help.

    I live in an Amish community and they celebrate this as "Old Christmas." They also celebrate Dec. 25th.
