Three Kings Day, a Puerto Rican Tradition

15822935_1215898591819409_4090810097859303246_nThree Kings Day, or Epiphany is celebrated in Puerto Rico and in most Spanish-speaking countries.  It is celebrated on January 6, and it begins on January 5, when children grab a shoe box and step outside to cut grass for the camels.  Once their shoe box is filled with grass, they place their boxes under their bed and leave bowl of water too.

My children were born in the US, but, since they were little they have known about the Three Kings, and although they are 15 and 14…they still go out and grab whatever grass they can find. Today was no exception, but, due to the fact that its only 25 degrees…they only found a little and they used a zip-lock bag instead of the show box.
