Three Kings Day (Dia De Los Reyes) falls on January 6 every year. It’s the day the children of Spain receive Christmas presents by leaving their shoes by the door with hopes that the three kings will leave them gifts in their shoes when they wake the following morning. The day is also celebrated by eating the roscon de los reyes, which are decorated to look like a crown that a king would wear. The celebrations continue with the Three Kings parades that take place on January 5th in Mijas Pueblo, Las Lagunas and La Cala de Mijas. The 3 wise men give out sweets to the children throughout the parades.
