Dia De los Reyes: How We Celebrate Three Kings Day

Thinkstock

Across Latin America, families come together in early January for a day that means more to them than Christmas: Dia de los Reyes.

Known as Three Kings Day throughout the world, Dia de los Reyes falls 12 days after the birth of Jesus Christ and is considered the day of the Epiphany. This Twelfth Night holiday is often celebrated with a feast and, in some countries, actually the day when kids get to open presents. Typically, the family meal also includes Rosca de Reyes--the traditional Kings Cake. While Latinos all celebrate a little differently, this traditional holiday is very popular from Argentina to Puerto Rico.
