Many children around the world woke up Friday to open Christmas presents from the Three Kings, or Reyes Magos in Spanish, to mark the end of this holiday season.

Three Kings Day is filled with rich customs, family gatherings and festive parades celebrated on Jan. 6 – or Jan. 19 for many Orthodox Christians who use the Julian calendar, according to National Geographic.

The holiday, which falls on the last of the 12 days of Christmas, is widely celebrated in many Latin American and Caribbean countries. In some, Three Kings Day is primarily also known by the name Epiphany. In the Orthodox Church, the holiday is known as Theophany and commemorates Christ’s baptism.

Why is Three Kings Day celebrated?

Three Kings Day is both a religious celebration and a cultural one, according to the National Museum of American History. It originated from the celebration of the longstanding religious holiday Epiphany, which ties back to Jesus Christ’s birth and baptism.

While Three Kings Day is celebrated for just one day, Epiphany is celebrated for days or weeks depending on the culture. The holiday is a reflective time for many communities of faith, who pay homage to three kings mentioned in the biblical account of Jesus’ birth. Many families don’t believe the holidays are “officially over” until the three wise men are celebrated.

Spain, Venezuela, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Mexico, Uruguay, Puerto Rico, Paraguay and Cuba hold big celebrations. In the U.S., Latinx and Hispanic communities commemorate Three Kings Day as a way to honor their own cultures and customs.

The first known references suggest that Christians commonly held Epiphany rituals by the fourth century A.D., according to Concordia Seminary.

What are some Three Kings Day traditions?
The holiday is known by different names in dozens of different cultures and countries and holds distinct traditions in each.

One tradition is for children to leave grass or hay out for the three kings in exchange for a gift. In Spain, instead of grass, children place a small shoe underneath pillow with a gift wish list.

In Mexico, a staple dish of the holiday is Rosca de Reyes, a large oval-shaped bread with dried fruit decorations and a baby Jesus figurine hidden inside.

Music plays an important part in holiday traditions, and parades of people will go house to house to sing carols and play instruments.


Prepare for the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
