The Epiphany Chad Tiernan 1/13/17

The Epiphany, otherwise known as Three King's Day, is celebrated all over the world. In Puerto Rico it is celebrated with the presence of family and lots of festivities

The day is celebrated on January 6 and it has a couple tradii ones. One of them is kids usually put hay and straw in their shoes the night before. Another is that ornaments and Christmas decorations are usually taken down on this day to symbolize the end of Christmas.

In Puerto Rico this day is celebrated with parades, festivals, and family gatherings. The three kings walk in the town as part of the celebration.

Kids usually receive a smaller gift than they do at Christmas as part of the tradition. This gift is usually more humble than the ones they would receive on Christmas. The day is filled with fun, remembrance, and celebration.
