Christmas in Puerto Rico

Standard

   
Christmas gone too fast?  Guess what ? Not for me. Puerto Rico has one of the longest Christmas season in the world.  We joyously celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th, but for us Christmas doesn’t end there. We also celebrate Epiphany or as we call it Three Kings Day on January 6th. 

That is when we celebrate the three wise men visit to baby Jesus. On January 5th children fill shoeboxes with grass and put them either under their beds or under the tree. The three wise men visit all the boys and girls during the night and while the camels rest and eat some grass the wise men leave present for the children. 

So if you want your holiday season to really last come and visit Puerto Rico.

How do you celebrate this holiday season in your home?
