HOW THE EPIPHANY IS CELEBRATED IN OTHER COUNTRIES? By: Grace Bergman I have neither given nor received unauthorized help on this work. 1/13/17

Puerto Rico is the country I have chosen. Puerto Rico celebrates the epiphany differently then us just like every one else does. Here is a couple examples of how Puerto Rico celebrates it.

It is one of the most important holidays on the Puerto Rican calendar. January 6th is the day chosen for the Three Kings Day. Instead of opening presents up on the 25th, they open presents on the 6th. There is lots of festivals and parades on this day. There is an annual festival at the Luis Muñoz Marín Park with live music, food and drinks and free gifts given away. The highlight of the day is when the "three kings" come walking into the town.
