Feliz Día de los Reyes Magos! May the Three Kings bring you lots of gifts!!

Today is the Feast of the Three Kings!!! The day they finally reached Bethlehem and found the Baby Jesus. They presented him with their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
In Mexico and Latin American countries, the children put hay in their shoes and leave them outside their front door at night. In the morning they find the hay gone, eaten by the camels, and in place they find small gifts left by the Kings.
Some people say they never heard of this. WHAT? If you sing the "Twelve Days of Christmas" you are referring to Jan 6th.  From Dec 25 to Jan 5 are the 12 days of Christmas.
That is why my Christmas Tree is still up!!!! (it's coming down tomorrow)
I love this day. Only setback......anniversary of the death of my father.
Gone for 22 years.
God bless you daddy.
