Up The Ladder To The Roof

Traditionally in Spain, Santa Claus (Papá Noel) doesn’t get much attention during Christmas — although he does gain ground (rooftop) with each passing year. Christmas Eve is a time for dinner with friends and family, but the gifts are often saved for Epiphany Eve. Epiphany is also known as Three Kings Day (Dia De Los Reyes Magos). You may remember my blog posts in the past few years about the Cabalgata de Reyes Magos (The Three Kings Parade). (Click here to experience our first Three Kings Day in Spain. I can’t believe that was nearly four years ago.)

Santa doesn’t bring gifts (usually) to Spanish children. The Three Kings do. And they don’t deliver the gifts until the eve of Epiphany, which means children here wake up to gifts on “Three Kings Day” instead of Christmas Day.

My Ephiphany:
“Yesterday’s broken dreams. Don’t you know they’ll all fade away?”
