When my mom was a little girl, growing up in Mexico, the celebration of Christ's birth was not limited to only one day. It continued 12 more days until the 6th of January...Epiphany or better know as Three Kings' Day. This is the day which celebrates the Three Wise Kings' arrival at the site of baby Jesus' birth baring their gifts. When my mom was a child it was tradition for children to leave their shoe out on the porch on the eve of the 6th for The Kings so that they would know where to leave a gift for them. It was a sweet tradition she passed down to my sisters and I and that my hubby and I passed down to our daughter. Although she is all grown up now she still puts her shoe out...Hee, hee, hee.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Three Kings' Eve.
Don't forget to leave your shoe out ;-)
