All you Catholics out there know that yesterday the Church celebrated the Feast the Epiphany, which marks the day when the Magi first laid eyes on the infant Christ. Once upon a time in the Christian world, this feast (which is technically observed on the 6th of January of each year) was bigger than Christmas, since it marked not the physical arrival of Jesus on Earth, but the date when the good news became known to the world. Today it’s still big stuff in Mexico, where each year a blocks-long cake is prepared and eaten. This year’s cake was 1.6 kilometers long, which, long though it is, is still shy of the record cake from 2000. What, are they slacking off down there?
