Dia de Los Santos Reyes Magos (Epiphany)

Today is Epiphany or as know in Mexico the Feast of Three Kings. On this day Mexicans eat the Rosca de Reyes ,a type of cake. Inside the rosca is a baby Jesus who ever finds the baby has to throw a party on February 2 , the feast of the Presentation. In Mexico this is know as el dia de la candelaria. During this day people dress thier baby Jesus with outfits.


  1. That sounds like our practice of the king here in Louisiana! It probably came with the spanish rule of the area. The two weeks before lent here are carnival or Mardi Gras. Whoever finds baby jesus has to buy the cake next year.

  2. That sounds fun! All we had today was a classroom blessing. The teachers sprinkled holy water on us :)
