Christmas and Epiphany - Schedule of church service

The first clear reference to Christians celebrating the Epiphany on January 6 can be found in the writings of Clement of Alexandria (c. 150-216), who refers to Christians who celebrate both the Birth of Christ and His Baptism on January 6. The Armenian Church following earliest Christian traditions celebrates Christmas on January 6.
