Dia De Reyes Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

New Year! New Creations, New Blog Hop!

If you just left Elsa then you are in the right place.

The presents are not received on Christmas, for Christmas is a celebration of Life of Our Savior.

The children's celebration of receiving presents is not until January 6th, "el día de Reyes", the day of the Kings, or the Wise Men Day. It is the Magi who brought the presents to the Baby Jesus, thus, they bring the toys to the boys and girls who have been good. The children place their shoes by the window, so the Magi place the present in the shoe. It the present is bigger than the shoe, it will be placed next to it. Many children, get a new pair of shoes for a present.

El dia de Reyes is celebrated with a "Merienda" consisting of hot chocolate and "The Rosca de Reyes". "La Merienda is the meal that takes. place any time between 5 P.M. and 7 P.M. it is not a heavy meal but the equivalent of "High Tea".

The Rosca de Reyes is a big oval wreath made out of egg bread (like an egg bagel, but huge) with dry fruit decorations and sprinkled sugar on top, but inside, there is a little ceramic doll which represents the Baby Jesus. The person who gets the piece of bread with the Baby, must be the Godparent of the Baby Jesus in the celebration of the Candelaria, on February 2nd.

I want my children to cherish, remember and pass on this tradition
I decided to create a recipe book filled with the wonderful goodies that are eaten during this time
Champurado (hot chocolate)
 and Rosca De Reyes (Sweet bread)

Wooden boxes to create gifts for baby Jesus from the Wisemen.
 Frankincense, Myrrh, and Gold Coins
 Children paper mache shoes to be filled with candy!

Don't forget to leave comments on all of the blogs for 6 chances at 6 different Grand Prize Giveaways!
Also make sure to email Gaby with a list or all of the WORDS you collect on the hop, it should create a full sentence.
Thanks for stopping by
