So tonight, the 3 Kings Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar come from the Orient bearing gifts. Traditionally Spanish children left their shoes out to be filled with gifts, but slowly the Christmas Tree and Papá Noel are taking over.

In most towns and cities across Spain tonight, the Kings arrive, sometimes on horse back, occasionaly by camel but more often than not on the back of a tractor and trailer! Always bearing gifts, sometimes just sweets and in the bigger cities actual toys.

It is traditional to have a big dinner and eat "Roscón de Reyes" a cake that has "Prizes" inside. But you need to make sure you don't get the "haba" or dried broad bean or it's your turn to pay for the Roscón.
