Día de los Reyes Magos

In most of Spain (along with a lot of other “latin” countries), gifts don’t come from Father Christmas, they come from the Reyes Magos (Magi Kings, the three kings from the biblical story of Christ’s birth).

Apparently, they got lost along the way and didn’t show up until a couple of weeks after the birth. As such, what best translates as Three Kings Day is celebrated on the 6th of January.

This is an important day for Andrea’s family, and as usual we all got together to see what Baltasar, Gaspar, and Melchor brought us. Amongst other things, I got a GorillaPod, and made use of it to get a photo of all of us (perhaps the first since I’ve celebrated Christmas with the Martínez Trujillo family.
