20 C+M+B 11
For instance it is the traditional day to bless your house by consecrating chalk and writing the year and the initials C+M+B above the door. Of course the CMB stand for Caspar Melchior and Balthazar but also has the meaning of "Christus Mansionem Benedictat" (Christ bless this home).
It is normally done in this pattern: 20 C+M+B 11
It is also a good day to make a Three Wise Man cocktail:
1 part Scotch Whisky (recommend a blended Scotch for Coctails. Johnnie Walker Red or Black. Green, Gold and Blue should never be mixed with anything else.
1 part Tennessee Whiskey (e.g., Jack Daniels).
1 part Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (e.g., Jim Beam White or Black Label).
Serve either neat or on the rocks, according to taste.
Three Wise Men go Hunting, which is the recipe above with the addition of Wild Turkey Bourbon.
Three Men and a Baby: recipe above, add milk. (YUCK!)
Four Horsemen: above recipe with the addition of 1 part Jose Cuervo
May the blessings of Wisdom and Personal Sovereignty be upon your houses this day. All of you, without exception.
