Feliz Día De Reyes

In Puerto Rico we celebrate Día de Reyes (Three Kings Day) on January 6 as the day the Mejay reached the new born, Jesus, to offer him gifts. This is the day were traditionally we would exchange gifts.

When young my siblings and I would get grass from outside and put in a shoe box. We would leave the box under our beds. This was suppose to be food for the "Tres Reyes Magos" (Mejay's) camels, that in return would leave gifts.

If you also celebrate this holiday please share your stories.
