"How the Epiphany is celebrated in other countries?" Kevin Hirsch 1-13-17

.

Epiphany in Mexico is also known as the day of holy kings. In Spanish it's Día de los Reyes. It's celebrated on January 6th. It's to celebrate the kings visiting Jesus in his manger. Children put their shoes in front of their front door and put out grass and water for the camels and when they wake up they have a bunch of presents. The kings are referred to as the magi. In Mexico one of the most important elements is the kings wreath. It's a large oval shaped cake that contains dried fruit. It symbolizes a crown

The three wiseman names are Melchor, Gaspar, and Baltazar. Christians believe they visited baby Jesus and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
