One of the traditions of Mexico most deeply rooted in the central and southern part of the country is the celebration of the Three Wise Men.
The Three Wise Men Day is commemorated on January 6 and is a long awaited date for the youngest of the Family since it is customary that the Three Kings of the East: Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar leave gifts for the children in their homes.
The celebration of the Wise Men goes back to the first years of evangelization of the New World where the story tells that Three Kings, guided by a bright star and mounted on a camel, a horse and an elephant, took their journey to adore the Baby Jesus and bring him gifts: gold for being king, myrrh for being a man and incense for being God.
Later after the opening of gifts, family and friends gather to share the traditional Rosca de Reyes(kingcake) accompanied by a chocolate or atole drink. Each guest must split their own portion of the kingcake since the one who has the fortune to take the doll (a plastic representation of the Baby Jesus) will have good luck all year and will have to offer a party with tamales and atole on February 2, Day of the Virgin of Candelaria.
Know and enjoy the traditions of Mexico and do not miss the opportunity to try our traditional Rosca de Reyes!
