I'm afraid that for a reader not accustomed with Orthodoxy is not clear from the material that Epiphany is a separate feast from Nativity and that some Orthodox Churches follow the new calendar and that's the reason that on 6th of January they compete in water to get the cross etc. And actually most of the Churches follow the new calendar and it's also not clear from the material.
