Each January on the Wednesday closest to Epiphany, the junior- and senior- high youth of Trinity Lutheran Church, Mount Joy, Pa., travel on foot and by car in search of homes still displaying Christmas lights. They offer the gift of spices (cloves, cinnamon and orange peels), representing those given to the baby Jesus by the wise men. The young people also give information about the day and season of Epiphany and about Trinity. About 50 homes are visited by the youth each year.
