We are learning about Spain and how they celebrate Christmas. The Nativity is the one of their main things or as they call it the Nacimiento. Every home has a nativity with a baby Jesus in it
Every year at Christmas they have elaborate Christmas markets. Every year they set up markets flowers, candles, handmade gifts, and decorations. These markets are very special and only come at Christmas.
La Misa Regallo
bells ring calling them to La Misa Regallo or the mass of the Rooster. After the mass they have a big feast which the main meal is turkey or pavo. They never eat dinner till after midnight.
The Three Wise Men
Santa does not bring gifts but the three wise men do. The Spanish Christmas lasts until January 6th, On the Eve of Epiphany, January 5th, children place their shoes on the doorstep, and in the secret of the night, the Three Wise Men pass leaving gifts. January 6th, they have parades in the streets.
