Today is Epiphany, the day traditionally chosen to commemorate the arrival of the three wise kings with their gifts of gold, frankincense, myrrh, candy, toys, argyle socks, and ipods. Here in Ticino, we got a day off and a bunch of pretty snow – a very nice way to conclude the holiday season. 

Special Epiphany riddle: Which party in the amazing moulded plastic tile with custom easel below overcame the spacetime continuum for this historic meeting?

Man, I'm so jealous you got the day off for Epiphany! Jenicrob mr. and I went to Brasserie Jo hoping to get a piece of King's Cake (it should come as no surprise to you that we celebrate this minor--at least in the U.S.--holiday). But for some reason B. Jo decided to serve the cake on Sunday Jan. 4th this year, so we missed it. How can you arbitrarily choose a day for King's Cake? It's supposed to be on Epiphany (or at least Twelfth Night--Sunday was neither!)!

Agreed: Sunday is completely arbitrary. Saturday might have reasonable, at least explicable... but Sunday is indefensible. Some people have no sense of sentimentality.

Next year, just ask the Mr. to hide a baby in your cereal.
