How the Epiphany is Celebrated in Colombia SeBastian LLANES

1/13/17

Kids write to the Three Kings asking them for presents and they leave their shoes out and that is where they find their gifts the next morning.

In many Latin American countries, including Colombia, Three Kings' Day is celebrated by having huge parades all across the country.

People in Colombia also celebrate the Epiphany by throwing parties on Three Kings's Day in which they eat and drink a lot.

On Three Kings Day, many go to a church service, as well as sing Christmas carols. In some countries, people chalk CMB on their door.
