    First time I do this. Byzantine priest did it in Latin and it was a nice experience.

    Feast of the Epiphany

    That's a beautiful tradition.
    Here it survives just in certain regions or villages.

    I'd never come across this. The only special Epiphany tradition we follow comes from France, where they eat a Galette des Rois: a pastry with almond paste filling (pate d'amande being a lot nicer than English marzipan, by the way). But even so it is a bit stodgy (etouffe-chretien). I cheat and make one with apple filling instead.

    But the French community at our church always offers pieces of Galette des Rois after mass on Epiphany.
