Day of Three Kings in Spain

On January 5 at the towns and large villages in Spain was held “Three Kings Day” or “Parade of the Epiphany.” The name is associated with the three pagan sorcerer-kings, Caspar, Melchior and Baltasar, who had come with gifts to worship the newborn Jesus in Bethlehem.

It is believed that kings bring the keys with which children can open their presents, which they will present to the next day. On this day, a column with costumed characters, acrobats and clowns entertained the assembled audience and generously showered them with sweets.
