Happy three kings

Three Kings Day is celebrated on January 6th, twelve days after Christmas. It is often viewed as the last day of the Christmas season, the end of the 12 days of Christmas. Just like a letter to Santa, the letter to the three biblical kings, and as far as i know is a tradition for many Hispanic children in the United States and other places. To be honest i dont really celebrate three kings, i know what it is as far as the story in the the bible and who the three wise men are. It just never really celebrated three kings with my family mah bad.

Really interest me the story of three kings, sort a like the story of santa clause...literally many children before going to bed will place their shoes near the Christmas tree, door or window, and write a letter to Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar. Quite interesting though and but a little too late for my children.

Happy three kings everyone!

Hi Kookie, your post did remind me of that day, here, it came and go and did not notice it. I never really celebrate it except when we are in France. We have this special cake called "gallette de rois" which we take as dessert or snacks for kids that day. Whoever got the small statue will be crowned king. Other than the bible story and that tradition, I don't know other meaning except their part on the birth of Christ.
