Home Neighbourhood Light of the World In Italy, oranges are served at ephiphay. Oranges represent light in the Italian feast of the Epiphany and are served either as a salad or as dessert. The symbolism is for the Wise Men who followed a special light, the Star of Bethlehem. Some people serve the oranges as a symbol of the gold the Wise Men brought to Jesus. We invite you to share oranges this Ephiphany season as you think about light in our world. Enjoy!
