Epiphany Around the World

The Boston Globe's "Big Picture" photoblog shares a beautiful roundup of the Christmas season around the world. It's fascinating for two reasons: 1) to see a major media outlet recognize that the Christmas season ends in January, not on Boxing Day, and 2) it features a great many pictures of Christmas and Epiphany celebrations from parts of the world it is easy to think of as being somehow "outside" Christendom, like China, Iraq, Gaza, and Turkey.

Love picture #5 - haunting.

And it's lovely to see, in picture 16, that little kids dressed up as angels is adorable the world over.

The Santas running with Jesus in picture 23 is just downright bizarre.
