Dia de Reyes

Or Three Kings day is the day that commemorates when the Three Wise Men delivered their gifts to baby Jesus {celebrated tomorrow January 6th}. It is celebrated all over the world mainly by Latin countries and communities, and traditionally christian countries like Spain. The religious name is the Feast of the Epiphany but in it has other names like Twelfth Night (England), O Dia de Reis (Brazil), and Loppiainen in Finland.

The Rosca de Reyes and galettes des rois a sweet breads or tarts that are traditionally served on this day and baked inside of them is a baby Jesus or favor, and whoever gets it their piece is the person who will host the prayer on this day. Check out the recipes for each of them:

As a final thought, for many of us the day is also the end of the Christmas season and for me the day when I put away all my Christmas decorations... so in the spirit of have an organized home I wanted to leave all of you with some tips from my favorite organization expert, Mrs. Stewart!

Have a great day my friends!
