Los Reyes Magos – Christmas Traditions

The most beloved tradition among children during Christmas in Spain is The Three Wise Men. Santa Claus is well known for giving gifts, but the stars in Spain are The Wise Men. They are those who followed a star to meet Jesus and offered him three presents: gold, incense, and myrrh to the newborn in Bethlehem.

Their majesties travel in camels so they arrival to Spain is delayed. Once here, they visit all the cities, and listen to the requests of the children. At night the children put their shoes on the door before going to sleep, so the Men know how many children live there. They also put something for them to eat and drink, as well as water and grass for the camels.
