How the Epiphany is celebrated in Spain Bryce Clark 1/13/17

In Spain, children write letters to the three kings Melchior, Gaspar, and Balthazar asking them what to bring them for "Fiesta de los Tres Reyes Mages." The children leave their shoes out with grass and water for the camels. The Epiphany is a lot more celebrated than Christmas.

Roscón

Roscón is a very popular desert used to celebrate the Epiphany. It is supposed to resemble a crown, and there is a figurine of Jesus inside the desert. If you find the figurine of Jesus, you can wear the crown for the day.

There are many parades celebrating the Epiphany.

Children wake up to their shoes filled with presents on January 6th, the day of Epiphany.
