How the Epiphany is celebrated in other countries s Sophia Quintero Period B 1/13/16

In Spain, the Epiphany is celebrated on January 6. It is also known as Three Kings Day, which is referred to in the gospel of Matthew. Children write their letters to the Three Kings telling them what they want. For most families in Spain, this day is always the day to exchange gifts.
The traditions are not only for children, but for adults as well. They leave out their polished shoes, sweets, milk/wine for the Kings on the eve of Epiphany. In the morning when the children wake up, the tree is filled with presents underneath.
For breakfast, they will eat a doughnut-shaped bread sprinkled with candied fruit. Inside of the bread, there is a figurine of baby Jesus, whoever finds the figurine baby is crowned king or queen of their house for the day.
