An important night today!

There will be parades in our town this evening to commemorate the arrival of the wise men. That means that tomorrow we will celebrate The Three Kings' Day! 
Traditionally, children receive gifts, brought by the three kings, Melchor, Gaspar and Balthazar. 
So... Are you excited? 
Watch this Christmas carol written by John Henry Hopkins, who wrote both the lyrics 
and the music. Through music you will learn interesting facts about this cool tradition.
By the way, catalonian and hispanic families will usually celebrate Three Kings' Day with a lunch that is topped off with the King's Bread for dessert. 
Children also wear a crown at the table in honor of the kings. Here you have my last king's special bread made at home. I have hidden a king toy and a dry bean. The tradition orders that the person who finds the king has to be crowded and the one who finds the bean will pay the king's dough the next year. ;D
