January 6 marks the Christian holiday of Epiphany (Trzech Króli, Three Kings), which is celebrated in Poland as a national holiday and non-working day.
Epiphany was reinstated only last year as a national holiday in Poland after being canceled during communist rule.
Throughout the country, 25 processions are set to take place, including one in Warsaw, with a symbolic march of the Three Kings – Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar.
Most businesses, as well as the Warsaw Stock Exchange, will be closed for the day.
The holiday is also celebrated in several other European countries, including Austria, Hungary, Greece, Spain, Slovakia, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, Finland, as well as in some parts of Germany.
