The Epiphany, by Sebastian TomaselliJanuary 13, 2017
In Mexico, the Epiphany is called Three Kings' Day, or Día de los Reyes. It is named so because on the feast of the Epiphany the three magi or three kings came to visit the baby Jesus and give him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh
Three Kings' Day is celebrated in Mexico 12 days after Christmas. It is a very important festival to the people of Mexico and is usually accompanied by music, costumes, food, and lights at night.
Both religious and secular traditions are observed as people both visit shrines and cathedrals and partake in cultural practices such as local types of music and food.
