The Epiphany in Puerto Rico

The Epiphany is one of the most important holidays on the Puertarican calendar. It is also called Día de los Reyes. It is a tradition for children to fill a box with fresh grass or hay and put it underneath their bed for the Wise Men's camels.tthen the Three Kings will take the grass and feed it to their camels and will leave a gift under their beds as a reward.

How they celebrate.

On that day they celebrate by having parties, parades, festivitivals, and family gatherings. San Juan throws big festival at the Luís Muñoz Marín Park with music, food, drinks, and sometimes free gifts for kids.
