When it comes to the Three Wise Men, some acknowledge it could be a losing battle. Jossy Vila said her grandson, 10, jokes that whatever present he doesn’t get on Christmas, he keeps his fingers crossed that he’ll get on Three Kings Day. Vila cooks pastelillos, or Puerto Rican turnovers, for her grandson’s class at school and brings them Jan. 6 so that his classmates can celebrate the holiday and learn about it.
