In many Latin American countries, the Epiphany is more important and or more celebrated than Christmas. In Spain particularly, this day is extremely important and often celebrated with large festivals and parades.

The Epiphany is the celebration of the arrival of the Three Kings or Magi to baby Jesus after his birth.

One of the most important elements of this day in Spain are Edible Wreaths. It is a large cake symbolizing a King's Crown, with a small figuine of Jesus inside; this symbolizes Jesus in hiding from King Herod.

On this holiday, the Three Kings bring gifts to children like Santa on Christmas.

The epiphany is celebrated on the last day of the Christmas season, January 6th.

In Spain, this day is characterized by lights, parades, festivities, costumes, great food, and more.
