EPIPHANY IN JANUARY, 2019

Where does the tradition of Epiphany come from?

The galette des rois is a typically French tradition.

It's not the mages who brought the cake.

This tradition goes back to the pre-Christian feast of January 6th.

The cake symbolizes the return of light after the long winter nights.

The round, flat, gold-colored cake represents the sun.

The bean in the cake comes from the time of the Romans.

It was black and white and was used to elect the King of the Saturnine Feast of Rome.
