January 6 is Epiphany. It is the day many Christians celebrate as the visitation of the Magi, or The Three Kings that came bearing gifts for the Christ Child. It is also known as Three Kings Day and is a day when gifts are exchanged instead of Christmas Day is many societies. Epiphany is celebrated in many places beside Spain.
Usually, children would fall asleep the day before and leave grass on a little box with a bowl of water for the Three Kings camels to eat and drink them. When they received their presents under the bed the other day, children would play all day with their new toys. Adults and family mostly celebrate together, eating and drinking beer while they listen to merengue, bachata, salsa or reggaeton.
January 6 is the Christian celebration of the Epiphany. Eastern Christians celebrate the Epiphany as the day Christ was baptized in the Jordan River, whereas Western Christians believe the day commemorates the day the Magi (the three kings or three wise man) visited the baby Jesus Christ with gifts.
The feast of manifestation, or Epiphany, is traditionally celebrated the 12th day after Christmas, January 6th. In the dioceses of the United States this feast has been moved to the Sunday between January 2 and January 8. Three Kings day is January 6th in almost every religion. This is the twelth day after Christmas and the day the three kings (who were not actually kings) arrived to the baby Jesus in Bethlehem.
