Now that January is here, most people are done celebrating the holidays. Well, not Hispanic families. One seasonal holiday remains – El Día de Los Reyes Magos, or Three Kings Day.
Three Kings Day is celebrated on January 6, twelve days after Christmas, the day of Jesus’s birth. It recognizes the day that the Three Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the baby Jesus. The three wise men traveled a long distance and were drawn guided by the North Star, which shone bright in the night sky.
