Turkey Epiphany

Turkey Epiphany

Children pray with Orthodox priests during an Epiphany ceremony in Izmir, Turkey, Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2016. The traditional Epiphany ceremony marks the Epithany when Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians, or an Orthodox priest throws a simple wooden cross into the water and swimmers race to be the first to retrieve it. In Izmir, Turkey’s third largest city, it was the first “official” Epiphany ceremony there since the end of a Greek-Turkey war nearly a century ago.(AP Photo/Emre Tazegul)
