The Three Kings, known by Western Christians as Balthazar, Caspar and Melchior, are said to have traveled from the East, while following the Star of Bethlehem, to worship Christ. Upon their visit, they presented Jesus Christ with three gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh. The visit as we know it, is celebrated on Jan. 6 as the observance of Epiphany — or what many refer to as Three Kings Day.

Celebrated among Latin American countries, Los Tres Reyes Magos bring children gifts while they sleep, placing them inside their shoes that they put underneath their bed.

In Mexico, and for many Latino Catholics living in the United States, Three Kings Day is celebrated with the traditional Rosca de Reyes, a ring shaped cake containing a Baby Jesus figurine. Whom ever finds the figurine, is responsible for throwing a party on Feb. 2 known as Candelaria Day – a feast to honor the Presentation of the Lord.
