Tomorrow will be a national holiday in Spain, marking the end of the Christmas calendar.

Epiphany is also known as Three Kings Day and is traditionally the day upon which Spanish children receive their Christmas presents.

Later today, thousands of children will head outside to see the Three Kings as they parade through Lanzarote’s towns and villages, and many will present them with letters asking them for certain presents. Then it’s a nervous sleep until tomorrow morning to find out what the Kings have left.

Many homes will also serve a Roscón de Reyes – a ring-shaped cream cake that often contains a dried bean. Whoever gets the bean is the “King” for the evening.
