For many Angelenos, today is being celebrated as Epiphany, or Three Kings Day (yep, those three kings), which is also known as the 12th, and last, day of Christmas. The observant may participate in gift-giving, attend services, and eat Kings' Cake; many mark the day by taking down the last vestiges of decoration from Christmas. To see how Epiphany is celebrated around the world, the Huffington Post has an image gallery. If you feel like getting in the kitchen and trying your hand at some baking, the LA Times Food Section has a recipe for Rosca de reyes (Kings' Cake).
