Tomorrow is the day of Epiphany, January 6th. "Epiphany” means to appear or make manifest. 

In the eastern church Epiphany is the day they celebrate Christmas. In the west we celebrate Epiphany as the visit of the magi, those mysterious men who came from the east to worship Jesus and to present their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 

Epiphany is called the “Christmas of the Gentiles,” because the magi were the first Gentile worshippers of the Messiah. Epiphany is proof that the baby born of the virgin Mary is for all the world.  

They say wise men still seek him, but the saying should really be "Wise God still seeks foolish men".
