✨ ¡Feliz #DíaDeReyes! In Spain, the Christmas season continues until today, Three Kings Day. The Three Wise Men (los Reyes Magos) parade through the streets in processions throughout the country on the night of January 5th and bring gifts to Spain's children.

🍰 Tradition is to celebrate with a roscón de Reyes (Kings' Cake). This sweet bread is topped with candied fruit, can be filled with cream or chocolate, and has a figurine and a bean inside. Got the figurine? You wear the 👑. Got the bean? Next year's roscón's on you!

🇺🇸 The tradition of the Kings' Cake can be found in the U.S. too, among Hispanic communities, where it's called rosca de Reyes, and in the South, in formerly Spanish and French territories, and in New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
