Three Kings Day ~ Epiphany ~ Little Christmas ~ 12th Night ~ Dia de los Reyes


Does your family celebrate this holiday? In some cultures January 6th it marks the end of the holiday season, and in others, the celebrating and gift giving just begin.  In our family we follow the traditions of Spain with gifts for the children from the Kings, eating Roscon de Reyes (Three Kings cake) and other traditional food, watching the big parade in Madrid via the Internet, and our annual big family party.

Our nativity figures are from Spain.
Can you find the Three Kings?

  1. Heather! what a lovely post this is. My family celebrated this holiday when my grandmother was live. It seemed important to her, and being one generation from Ireland I think it must have been a tradition in her family. I always leave my Christmas tree up until Little Christmas. Thank you for posting this and your lovely personal family photographs.
