The 3 Kings’s Holiday (Los Reyes Magos)

The holiday destined to the 3 Kings in Spain (Los Reyes Magos) is more of a Latin tradition in today’s world that was born through the religion and local believes. But the birth of this tradition comes from the old world, Europe.

What about Santa Claus?

Instead of Santa Claus bringing gifts and getting down the chimney, in Europe they have the 3 Kings, full of generosity and put to test on the 6th day of the year (January 6th). This day, people celebrate by going out the streets and specially the most important avenues of the city, carrying bags full of presents, giving away candies and any other sort of gifts to family and friends.

The actual fact about the 3 Kings is found in the New Testament where it is clearly stated that the kings Melchor, Gaspar and Balthasar made a trip overnight to a very far place where there are supposed to find and bring back home gifts to Jesus, who was recognized by them as the son of God.
