January 6-Three King’s Day

Today, January 6, is a very important holiday for many Latin American and European countries as they celebrate “Dia de los Reyes,” (Three Kings Day) and The Feast of the Epiphany. Three Kings Day remembers the day when the Three Wise Men followed the star to Bethlehem, bearing their treasured gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh for Jesus.

In Mexico, for example, El Día de los Reyes Magos is a more important feast day than celebrating Santa on Christmas Day. On January 5, children place their empty shoe outside their home or near their nativity in anticipation of what the Three Kings will bring for them the morning of the 6th.

For the last 2000 years, La Befana goes out on the night of the Epiphany, throughout Italy. This is the very night that the three Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem. She climbs into chimneys looking for the Christ Child and leaves children gifts in the stockings. You can learn more about La Befana HERE.
