It is almost the 12th day of Christmas and children across Spain and Latin America have put out their shoes on balconies, window sills, and under Christmas trees, waiting for the presents from Los Reyes Magos (the Magic Kings). The magic kings’ names are Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar and they are the three wise men from the Bible who visited baby Jesus bearing gifts that befit the King of Kings. On January 5th they parade through Spanish towns with their retinue of helpers, greeting children and their parents and getting showered with caramels and candy.

Following the example of Spanish children, I compiled a wish list for the Three Kings. I hope they visit my blog and leave the shoes from the list at my house door tomorrow:)
DEAR MAGIC KINGS, would you please bring me these shoes? I promise I will be good all year long!
