Project 365 – Day 5

Day 5

El Dia de los Reyes (The day of the kings) is a Mexican holiday celebrated in early January. It signifies the 3 wise men who brought gifts to the baby Jesus. It’s traditional on this day to give toys to children and eat the bread pictured (Rosca de Reyes). The rosca contains a number of small white baby Jesus figures and it is considered lucky to find one in your slice of the bread. We shared the rosca with my in-laws, whoever found a baby Jesus would have to pay for Tamales on February 2nd. Sure enough I found one!
