Els tres reis (3 Kings): A Spanish Tradition

It's a religious tradition inspired by the Three Wise Men. It's similar to Santa Claus.
For Christmas, children write a list of presents they want from the Kings.
On the 5th of January there are parades in every village or town. The children can see the 3 Kings and sing a song for them. When they go back home they leave out biscuits and 3 glasses of milk to say thank you and they go immediately to bed. On the 6th of January the children wake up to find the presents underneath the Christmas Tree.
