Today is the BIG day for Mexican children,it is call Día de Reyes (Kings Day) and it reffer to the day that the 3 kings arrive following the the sign of the star to see the new born King Jesus. It is a Mexican Tradition to take the kids Downtown and have their picture taken with the 3 Kings, and is the day when most of them receive their presents, toys, clothes, candy, etc. Most of the kids do not get the present the 24 as Santa Clause is a foreign tradition very popular in the North states of Mexico and on the border but for the rest of the Country the celebration is today. The kids open the presents in the morning and the families gather together in the evening to share "La rosca de Reyes" a kind of bread in a donnut shape with friut and inside it has 2 to 5 little white boys that symbolise the newborn King. If you get the boy when eating la Rosca, then you need to do a party the 8th of February called Día de la Candelaria and make tamales.
