    4jan19-- Epiphany, also known as the Day of Holy Kings (Día de los Santos Reyes), is celebrated on January 6 in remembrance of the biblical story of the three kings’ visit to Jesus. Día de los Santos Reyes is not a public holiday but is a religious observance. Christians believe that three kings (or wise men) – Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar – visited the child Jesus and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Businesses have normal opening hours. In addition to getting presents from baby Jesus on Christmas Eve, Mexican children receive gifts from the three wise kings (Reyes Magos) on January 6. Streets in major cities are packed with food stalls, gifts, and outdoor parties. It is also customary to eat Rosca de Reyes, which is a wreath-shaped fruity bread baked with a figure of baby Jesus inside. The person who finds the figurine of baby Jesus inside his or her share of the sweet bread, Rosca de Reyes, symbolically “becomes” Jesus’ godparent. EnJoy EnJoy

    Too bad there isn't audio on this camera. Appears that it could be quite entertaining, what with concerts and all. Someday maybe.
