Tuesday's Word: epiphany

e·piph·a·ny ( P ) Pronunciation Key (-pf-n)n. pl. e·piph·a·nies

Epiphany

A Christian feast celebrating the manifestation of the divine nature of Jesus to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi.

January 6, on which this feast is traditionally observed.

A revelatory manifestation of a divine being.

A sudden manifestation of the essence or meaning of something.

A comprehension or perception of reality by means of a sudden intuitive realization: “I experienced an epiphany, a spiritual flash that would change the way I viewed myself” (Frank Maier).

[Middle English epiphanie, from Old French, from Late Latin epiphania, from Greek epiphaneia, manifestation, from epiphainesthai, to appear : epi-, forth; see epi- + phainein, phan-, to show; see bh-1 in Indo-European Roots.]

Not that you always have to use my suggestion, but how about "optimism" as the next word?

PS: Today is Tuesday, August 15 (not the 14th)
