Extending the holiday spirit with Three Kings Day

January 6, 2011 | 11:01 am

Make sure you grab a cup of coffee, tea or Mexican hot chocolate and enjoy this story in this week's Food secton by Lorenza Muñoz about the Mexican feast that's fit for a king: Three Kings Day, or el Día de los Reyes Magos, bookends the bustling social calendar in Mexico and marks the day when the three wise men were said to have offered their gifts to the baby Jesus. For kids, it marked one more day of presents. And it also included a serving of rosca de reyes, or kings' cake, above. Tradition calls for a tiny plastic baby doll to be hidden in the ring of sweet pastry. Click here to read the rest of the story -- and find out what happens to the person who ends up with the baby doll.
