How the Epiphany is celebrated in other countries Erek Colon 1/13/17 "I have neither given nor recieved unauthorized help on this wOrk."

Today, i will teach you on how the Epiphany is celebrated in the great city of Puerto Rico.
For Puerto Rico, the Epiphany, or Día de los Reyes, is a religious holiday where the city celebrates the Three Wise Men's visit to see the newborn Christ by exchanging gifts.
In much of Latin America, including Puerto Rico, Día de los Reyes is celebrated in particular by children who receive gifts from the three Magi.
Every year, on the night of January 5th, children put three things outside their door.
Shoes...
Grass...
And water
And on the next day, the children wake up to numerous gifts left by the Reyes Magos, or Three Kings.
And, across Latin America and the United States, Latinos celebrate Día de los Reyes in style.
And that style...is none other than parades! And it's not just parades, there's also celebrations throughout the whole day!
And not only that, people host lavish parties to celebrate the coming of the Three Kings.
But sometimes, the three wise men are referred as Magi, which some believe were astronomers.
Unfortunately, they aren't named in Scripture.
But, the men did recieve names in the early church.
In the early church, their names Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar.
