Holiday: Three Kings Day

Three Kings Day, or El Dia de los Reyes Magos, celebrates the Biblical story of the three kings - Gaspar, Melchior and Balthazar - who followed a star that led them to Bethlehem, where they brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The journey is said to have taken 12 days, beginning on December 25 and ending with their arrival on January 6.
