Epiphany Day

A friend e-mailed about this and I want to add my wishes as well to all who remember that the Twelfth Day of Christmas is a cause for feasting.  Fortunately, we had a small celebration here--chili and twelve bean soup. Just enough to take the chill off these January glooms

 And we talked about the Three Magi who came and inadvertently set off a series of events which led to Herod's slaughter of children and the Holy Family fleeing to Egypt.  In a sense Herod had an epiphany of a different kind:  "a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience." identifies the Season for Epiphany 
I don't have a specific book or reference work to introduce here.  I have been reading numerous posts about the books people have read through the last year.
I wish you well in this season and many epiphanies.
