Dia de los Reyes Magos, day of the three majic kings.

Today is when the kids open the presents that the three kings bring them, that is the traditional time in Mexico that small children receive presents, some also get presents at Christmas, more in big cities than in small towns where during Christmas only a midnight church service and a very late dinner is normal.

Yesterday I got the last rosca de reyes "traditional bread" from the bakery we are having that today with chocolate, normally it is eaten the night before, we are doing it today to acomodate the poor souls that had to work yesterday.

The tradition is that the rosca has a small figurine "Jesus" and who gets it has to throw a party, today they are made of plastic, we still have the one from my great grandma and that is made of porcelain, needles to say that one is no longer used.

Since I did not behave, "I think!" I did not get anything, so would you guys tell us what you got from the three kings?

Hugs, kisses, and tears from Brenda, Jesus, Pilar, Dalia, Hermalinda. Yvette, and Andrea. I could not be there. But my gifts had arrived via ESTAFETA.

I had gotten some kind of Lauren St Voom Voom perfume in the states for Brenda, A 100% stainless VICTORINOX knife and handyman belt tool for Jesus, and impossible to find NIKE accessories for the girls. Andrea got a steamy Hermalinda Linda comic book from the 1970's.

Like dia de Navidad the day of the three kings is intensely family. I just got off the phone. Dalia said it best "Today is the day when we should all feel good that we have such a wonderful family" Gave me a little attack of the allergies, it did [emoticon]
