Celebrate Like Kings in Spain

January 6 > Festival of the Epiphany 

The festival is the Dia de Reyes (Three Kings Day), when the three wise men, or Kings, arrived in Bethlehem bearing their treasured gifts of gold, frankincese and myrrh.

In Spain, and particularly in Barcelona, this is celebrated with parades, while children leave their shoes out at night and wake up to find them filled with presents.
