Día de Reyes Magos


6 January is a special day in Spain, it’s the religious celebration of “Día de Reyes” – Day of Kings – which symbolize the three mags from Bible that followed the light on the sky, announcing the birth of Jesus. In Spain it’s similar to Christmas, has a special dinner, kids receive gifts and there are fabulous parades on the main boulevards (in Madrid was on Paseo de la Castellana). Roscón (de Reyes) it’s a traditional pastry cake that is consumed in that special day. I found out from where to buy the best roscón in town and that’s it:

It was very tasty and, at the end, we found the little toy hidden inside the cake (representing the flight of Jesus, fleeing from King Herod’s evil plan to kill all babies that could be the prophesied messiah, it’s the religious interpretation). It’s a tradition that says “the one who found the toy is the King or Queen of the Banquet” – well wasn’t me who discovered the toy but anyway, I can easily be the King or the Queen, hihihi.

  1. Si? Te tii bine? Nu de alta, da’ sa nu cazi, ca, cine stie, poate, nu pici, unde trebuie. DACA nu vei fi prins? Numai nu-mi spune, ca esti imposibil de prins! Si parul meu are uneori idei din astea, dar i le scot repede.
    *isi freaca mainile, zambind, se uita in sus si pleaca…prinsa cu treaba sau a prins-o somnul*

  2. Ce dulce e povestea! Ca si prajiturele din poze.
    “I can easily be the King or the Queen” – bine spui! Astazi cine vrei sa fii? 😀

    P.S. Iarasi imi faci pofta. Noroc, ca nu mi-e foame, asa ca te iert (sau nu?). 😉
