Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of Epiphany

Help

Members of the Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of Epiphany around the world.

Also known as "The Blessing of the Waters", the epiphany commemorates Christ's baptism in holy waters.

And it is believed a year's worth of good luck comes to those who retrieve a golden cross blessed by archbishops.
