The Polish Parliament has rejected a draft bill purporting to restore the Christian public holiday of Epiphany (January 6).

This Christian holiday, also called Three Kings in Poland, was a public holiday until the 1960's when the communist party canceled it as part of its crack-down on the Catholic church.

The bill went in front of parliament last month (2008-09-22), following a petition which had garnered over half a million signatures (2008-06-27).
