InÂ Spain,Â Mexico,Â Cuba,Â Puerto RicoÂ and some otherÂ Latin AmericanÂ countries Epiphany day is calledÂ El DÃa de los ReyesÂ (The Day of the Kings), i.e., the day when a group of Kings or Magi, as related in the second chapter of theÂ gospelÂ ofÂ Matthew, arrived to worship and bring three gifts to the baby Jesus after following a star in the heavens. This day is sometimes known as theÂ DÃa de los Tres Reyes MagosÂ (The day of the Three RoyalÂ Magi) orÂ La Pascua de los NegrosÂ (Holy Day of the Blackmen) inÂ Chile, although the latter is rarely heard. In Spanish tradition, on the day ofÂ January 6th, three of the Kings: Melchor, Gaspar, and Balthazar, representing Europe, Arabia, and Africa, arrived on horse, camel and elephant, bringing respectively gold, frankincense and myrrh to the baby Jesus.In Spain, Argentina, and Uruguay, children (and many adults) polish and leave their shoes ready for the Kings’ presents before they go to bed on the 5th of January. Sweet wine, nibbles, fruit and milk are left for the Kings and their camels. InÂ Mexico, it is traditional for children to leave their shoes on the eve ofÂ January 6Â by the family nativity scene or by their beds. Also a letter with toy requests is left and sometimes the shoes are filled with hay for theÂ camels, so that the Kings will be generous with their gifts. InÂ Puerto Rico, it is traditional for children to fill a box with grass or hay and put it underneath their bed, for the same reasons. In some parts of northernÂ MexicoÂ the shoes are left under the Christmas tree with a letter to the Three Kings. This is analogous to children leaving mince pies or cookies and milk out forÂ Father ChristmasÂ in Western Europe.
