Happy Three Kings Day/Epiphany

Postby Rio Cana » Sun Jan 06, 2013 10:48 am

Its January 06, and everyone is celebrating here in Puerto Rico, Three Kings Day (Dia de los Reyes). It is even celebrated more then December 25. PR. is generally the few places that still celebrates it in a big way. People have parties and make promises to the Three Kings.

Schools here have generally been closed since around Dec. 10 for the Christmas holiday which ends here after Three Kings Day. They should restart on January 9.

It really is a nice holiday in which kids the day before have to cut some grass for the camels that bring the Three Kings and presents. Some people here give gifts on this day and not on Christmas. The Governor even gives out gifts to a long line of kids in the Capital City.

Side note - The Germans have what is supposedly left of the Three Kings in Cologne. In the Great Cathedral in Cologne. I would think the town of Juana Diaz would love to have them. They even have a museum dedicated to the Three Kings.

Video of Three Kings Day celebration in PR. and NY.

So to those that celebrate Three Kings Day, do you think its nice or not.

Have yourself a merry Little Christmas.

Special good wishes to the dispossessed Coptic Christians (victims of that lovely "Arab Spring" in Egypt) who are at worship today in Queens with Orthodox Christians who have Mideastern roots.

Here in Milan motorbikers celebrate the Epiphany and La Befana (a sort of old witch bringing gifts to kids on this day, you can see a huge muppet reproducing her fair semblant in the picture) by a parade through the city streets. Quite a noisy one, given that on average you have some 10k bikers in it.

Happy Loppiainen, everyone! :)

That's semi-literally "ending day", the day when Joulu, or Yuletide, ends, and it's back to the regular daily lives for everyone.

Coronavirus related. This too. And this. These are all jokes. This isn't. This is, again, but it's also the last one.
Apologies for absences, RL has been hectic, nothing to do with COVID-19, I'm just busy with other things than NS.
