There is no sin except stupidity. - Oscar Wilde So, this is where all the sinners converge come Christmas. In Macy's, at Herald Square, the world's largest department store, the vortex of holiday anxiety nervosa. You have to be a little screwy to come in here and shop. More than 45 acres sounds large until you realize that 50,000 to 75,000 people come here every day between Thanksgiving and Christmas. On this day, it feels like each and every one of those 75,000 is standing next to us in Guy Sock World.

A friend writes: Here's what happened to me the other day, my first time on Market Street East since its face-lift. I saw a piece of paper - bright orange, I think - on the sidewalk. It looked absolutely out of place, next to the green bus shelters so new the wrapping is still on them, next to the red-brick sidewalk that's barely been scuffed. About half a block later, I passed one of the new circular concrete trash receptacles and there was a crumpled up piece of paper on the sidewalk, obviously meant for the bin. I almost bent down and picked it up, but someone got in the way. Crossed the street.

You can take Lisa Bonet out of the San Fernando Valley . . . and she'll be more than happy to stay away. "I try not to think about Los Angeles," said the "Cosby Show" co-star, who attended Birmingham High School in Van Nuys in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. "It's dry, boring and arrogant. Most of the people here think Los Angeles is 'it.' I was so bored with my way of life here, I was ready to drop out of school in the 10th grade and move to New York. I'm so glad the show is (produced and set)

If the idea of hosting an Epiphany party appeals to you, why not have guests share their own epiphanies? It's the beginning of the new year, after all, and along with making the usual New Year's resolutions, now's a good time to look back and retrace those moments of sudden insight, flashes of intuition - some call it an encounter with God - that fall under the heading of "epiphany. " Between sips of champagne and nibbles of galette des rois, have guests recall their own personal revelations.

By last weekend, many area residents had already put their Christmas trees out for the trash and warm memories of the holidays had begun to fade in the reality of stalled cars and frozen pipes. But icy roads and a bitter cold night did not prevent more than 200 people from gathering last weekend at Immaculata College for one more Yuletide party - a spirited celebration of El Dia de los Reyes - the Day of the Three Kings. In Caribbean and Latin American countries, and among Hispanics in the United States, it is Jan. 6 - also known as Epiphany - and not Christmas Day on which children receive gifts from mysterious visitors who come in the night.

One night after I heard, I went out dancing and I had this epiphany: God bless Anita Ward and "Ring My Bell"! I heard the voice of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr: "Free at last!" And I was like, "Whoa!" Feeling myself. Not afraid to be completely myself, which is something that I've made an immense effort to do as an actor. . . . I will say this, too. God is a weird thing to talk about. When you feel such an onslaught of loss, change.. . .I always assumed I would become a cynic, shut my heart down.

Immerse yourself in the warmth of the tropics at Camden Children's Garden as it is transformed into Puerto Rico's Plaza de Aibonito for a Three Kings Day observance. Known as the feast of the Epiphany, Jan. 6 is regarded as the official end to the holiday season. In many Hispanic communities this is the day children receive their gifts. Nearly 200 from Camden's Respond Day Care Centers and Head Start programs will receive presents from the Marines' Toys for Tots campaign from Camden city officials masquerading as the wise men. Former Police Chief Edwin Figueroa, City Council President Angel Fuentes, City Council aide Eddie Colon, City Councilman Gilbert "Whip" Wilson, and Luis Lopez of the school board will play the kings who visited Jesus bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Most of them are retired, and left the streets of South Camden behind years ago for places such as Voorhees, Cherry Hill and Millville. But yesterday, they returned to the place where many of them were baptized, schooled and married, as they do every year on the first Sunday of January to share happy tidings for the new year. About 90 parishioners, past and present, gathered in the basement of St. Joseph's Polish Roman Catholic Church to eat, sing and celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany.

John Huston's acclaimed last film and a steamy drama starring Sting and Melanie Griffith are among this week's new videos. THE DEAD (1987) (Vestron) $89.98. 82 minutes. Anjelica Huston, Donal McCann, Marie Kean, Donal Donelly. John Huston's film is a masterstroke, stunning proof that he kept his best for last. The Dead is faithful to its literary source (James Joyce's short story), while establishing a mood both breathtakingly joyful and crankily Hustonian. The plot revolves around an Epiphany supper hosted by two spinster music teachers, whose love of exuberant jigs and plaintive ballads sets the tone for an evening warmed by flickers of eroticism and chilled by pangs of loneliness.

Mary Ellen Desmond is a Philadelphia treasure: a chanteuse whose musical moods swing from dark to light, a musician capable of great sensitivity and nuance, a teacher who responds to the needs of every student. That includes local singer/songwriter Matt McAndrew. He was a contestant on this season of NBC's The Voice and studied voice with Desmond in his freshman and sophomore years at the University of the Arts. All this, and Desmond still makes her annual Comfort & Joy concert for HIV/AIDs-related charities a must during the Christmas season.

Dressed in red robes and flowing white headgear, Francisco Torres wasn't sure Sunday morning whether he was Melchior, Gaspar, or Balthazar. "Who?" he asked. It made no difference. What mattered was that Torres and his two companions were dressed as kings - the wise men of the East - because that's what hundreds waiting in the pews of Camden's St. Anthony of Padua parish were there to see. Christmas may be a fading memory in many households, even as most Orthodox and Eastern-rite Christians mark the birth of Christ on Monday.

Ironically, Winslow Homer became a great American artist in large part because he spent nearly two years living in an English fishing village at the edge of the North Sea. Before he settled in Cullercoats in the spring of 1881, Homer had built up an impressive portfolio of prints and paintings that marked him as a perceptive observer of American life, particularly as lived outdoors. These images often depicted ordinary people such as farm boys, or fashionably dressed young women at leisure.
