On January 6th

In Spain, we celebrate in addition to Christmas, The Epiphany, or the Day after the Twelfth Night, on January 6th; anyway, we remember the day when the Three Wise Men or The Three Kings (Magi) visited Baby Jesus to bring their presents.

So, a lot of people is increasingly celebrating Christmas, but the Old Catholic Tradition in Spain says we celebrate Epiphany. Usually, what most people would and usually do was celebrating the main day for gifts giving the Twelfth Day of Christmas and another day for 'smaller', 'little' presents on Christmas 25th, as the Pagan Tradition says.

I am explaining this because these photos were taken on January 6th, the morning when we are suposed to open the presents after the Night when 'Magi' travel the World to give out their gifts. Hope you enjoy them!

The main gifts we received at home were the table and the chairs you see on the photos. Also, the small pink and white stool on the right of the pictures. Do you like them?


What do you think about the wreaths on the balcony windows? A tradition on front doors in houses taken to and apartment balcony. We also decorated the balcony railing with fir and red garlands and I really loved the Christmas feel they give.

These are some details of the presents all over the Living room floor.

Thanks for visiting!

    Navidad, navidad... no es una festividad que me entusiasme. Realmente lo único interesante que le encuentro son los regalos de Reyes.

    Un saludo,
