The children of the world write to the Three Kings that visited baby Jesus on this day about what they want for Christmas. In Hispanic culture, this day is celebrated as a family gathering while the children open up their gifts from the Three Kings. In biblical context, the three wise men visited baby Jesus in the manger on January 6th, after a 12 day trek through the desert, thus was born Three Kings Day. The day closes the Christmas festivities and is when the people of Spain and Latin America exchange gifts.
