Feliz Dia de los Reyes!

The 12th day of Christmas. Epiphany. Theophany. Little Christmas. The Magi. The Wise Men. Whatever you call it.
Happy Three Kings Day!

This is the day that the three Kings or Magi brought gifts to baby Jesus. Some people skip Christmas and give/get their gifts today-- or they do both. The children put a box or shoes under their bed with grass or hay for the camels and in the morning they find the grass has been eaten and they are left with a gift from the Kings!

I find it funny when people first learn about this holiday and have a negative reaction or say they don't believe in it, but they celebrate an imaginary fat man squeezing up and down chimneys, flying on a sleigh with reindeer. Ho, ho, ho!

Feliz Dia de los Reyes! If anyone is in New Orleans, please send me a KING CAKE!!!!
