How the Epiphany is celebrated in Spain By shelby langen

In Spain, the epiphany is celebrated on January 6th and is called Fiesta de Los tres Reyes Mages or in English, the festival of the three magical kings. This is the day that the three wise men brought gifts to baby Jesus.

On the epiphany a special cake is eaten called the Roscón, which is very doughy and filled with cream or chocolate and contains a gift. Roscón means ring shaped roll.

As well as Christmas, kids also receive gifts this day, the night before they leave out there shoes and sweets for the wise mans transportation, the next morning they receive gifts and eat roscón in the morning.
