The Day of the Three Kings honors the wise men – Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar – who traveled to Bethlehem with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the baby Jesus. In México, El Día de los Tres Reyes is celebrated on January 6th with dinners and family get-togethers, and offers the last seasonal opportunity for children to open presents. The holiday is also notable for its signature treat, a circular sweet bread called rosca de reyes . A miniature representation of the baby Jesus is hidden inside the bread, and the person who finds it is expected to throw a tamales party for Candlemas on February 2nd, the date that marks the official end of the holiday season.

The Star of Bethlehem is a watercolor painting by Sir Edward Burne-Jones depicting the Adoration of the Magi with an angel holding the star of Bethlehem. It was commissioned by the Corporation of the City of Birmingham for its new Museum and Art Gallery in 1887, two years after Burne-Jones was elected Honorary President of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. At 101 1/8 x 152 inches, The Star of Bethlehem was the largest watercolor of the 19th century. It was completed in 1890 and was first exhibited in 1891.

January the 6th is a special day in Mexico. Known as ‘El Dia de Reyes’ (Three Kings Day), this holiday represents the height of the Christmas season. The date marks the culmination of the twelve days of Christmas and commemorates the three wise men who traveled from afar, bearing gifts for the infant baby Jesus. The children of Mexico in particular look forward to this holiday as traditionally, gifts are exchanged on this date, not on Christmas day.
