  Kings' parade in Alicante
by DanielF

Spanish children are so lucky that they receive their Christmas presents in two different days. The tradition used to be that presents were brought to the children by the three Wise Kings on the night of 5 January. Nowadays, Santa Claus has become popular too, and it is usual to make presents on the Christmas night.

But the emotion of watching the parade of the three kings, leaving a glass of milk for them and a bit of straw for their camels, cannot be replaced, for sure...
