Dia De Reyes Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to El Dia de Reyes blog hop!!!


El Dia de Reyes (Three Kings Day) is also known as the Epiphany and is celebrated on January 6th which is a special day in Mexico. This holiday represents the height of the Christmas season. The date marks the culmination of the twelve days of Christmas and commemorates the three wise men who traveled from afar, bearing gifts for the infant baby Jesus. The children of Mexico in particular look forward to this holiday as traditionally, gifts are exchanged on this date, not on Christmas day.
