El Día de Reyes

By 8. January 2013 Europe No Comments

We have just celebrated the Spanish equivalent to Christmas Day known as the 3 Kings Day which is held on Jan 6th. The night before, 3 Kings upon floats and bands take to the streets throwing sweets to children and families lining the pavements. There is an old tradition in rural areas that children will leave their shoes outside filled with straw and carrots, hoping that the 3 Kings (especially Baltazar who rides a donkey and is believed to be the gift giver) will visit during the night and leave them gifts for the morning.
