Three Kings’ Day

Did you think the Christmas season was over already?

Not so fast. We’re still counting down to the 12th day of Christmas, also known as the Epiphany, also known as Three Kings’ Day or El Dia de los Reyes Magos (the day that the three kings arrived in Bethlehem at the scene of the Nativity). Traditionally celebrated in Spanish and Latin cultures, Three Kings’ Day celebrations are all over Los Angeles. Check out our article on CBS Local Online to see the list of celebrations and suggestions for where to buy a rosca de reyes, a traditional Three Kings’ Day cake.

    Thanks for the listing. In my high school French class, we’d have La Fete des Rois as well on the Epiphany. Same concept w/ the cake. Just that whomever got the jewel in the slice would be the king or queen for the day.
