On the Feast of the Epiphany we celebrated the traditional blessing of chalk in honour of the Magi. After the blessing the Faithful take the chalk to bless their own homes, marking the door of the house with the following:
20 + M + B + C 14
The numerals give reference to the current year and the letters M B C are the names that tradition accords the Magi - Melchior, Caspar and Balthasazar.
