The Spanish celebrate epiphiany (Kings day on the 6th of January), and its their main gift giving day which coincides with when the three wise men, reyes magos gave Jesus their gifts.

In Orihuela they arrive by camel, in Benidorm by boat.

Do they do anything different in your town?

Here in Cadiar they come on a Burro!!!!!!! there aren't many other options.... There is an Ostrich, but I don't think that would hang about once the fireworks start.

 We did 3 Kings in Garrucha this year. As it is a fishing port, they arrived on 3 trawlers and then went around the town throwing sweets. Apparently they were a bit stingy this year compared to previous!! I was a bit disappointed with it all really after all the hype .

Here on the Mar Menor, they arrive by boat and have a huge procession through the main street of Santiago de la Ribera, throwing out handfulls of sweets and giving out presents. Well worth a look if you are nearby on the evening of the sixth.

Here in Manilva they arrive on floats pulled along by cars. 

All the kids go with their plastic bags ready to grab a ton of sweets.  A few years back they used to be soft sweets but now they use the hard ones which hurt a bit more when they hit you in the face....and hurt even more when all the kids jump on top of you to get them!

The clever people arrive with their umbrellas to catch even more sweets.

I remember that one year they arrived 5 minutes early and the streets were practically empty!  It threw everyone.  We bagged quite a lot of sweets that year.

The kids are already looking forward to the next one.
