Three Kings Day

Three Kings Day

Today we celebrate The Three Kings Day.  According to the bible, the three kings or wise men, visited baby Jesus in Bethlehem when he was born. They came bearing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Just like Christmas day, the Three Kings Day is a huge holiday in Puerto Rico.  Similar to Santa Claus, the kings visit the houses during the night (January 5th) and bring gifts to the kids.  You can learn more about this tradition here. 

Happy Three Kings Day!
