Día de Reyes

Kings Day. Today the three kings arrived with their gifts for baby Jesus.

A rosca is the traditional bread served today. It's supposed to look like a crown. There's a tiny plastic baby somewhere inside. Whoever gets this piece is supposed to host the candelaria celebration on February 2. I'll be hosting this year's celebration although I'm not quite sure what that means yet.

This reminds me of the time my good friend Paula sent me a King Cake, the traditional pastry served in New Orleans and surrounding area on Epiphany.
