Dia Reyes Blog Hop...






Card#1

________________________________________________________________


Card #2
________________________________________________________________


Welcome to the Dia Reyes Blog Hop sponsored by Gaby from http://www.gabycreates.com/. A few weeks ago I was honored that Gaby had asked me to participate in this blog hope. Initially I was shocked and then I became scared. I have never ever been asked to be part of a blog hop. I have only "hopped" along. I actually made 2 cards, because I thought just about the 1 side of the Three Kings, after Ready Gaby's statement about the Three Kings I made a different one.
If you haven't had the chance read about other cultures traditions I would highly recommend it.


So Gaby is doing something a little different with her hop, hope it will be fun for you all.
Here are the Rules:
You must leave a comment on each of the designers blog to be eligible for the grand prize.
Along the way some designers will have a word. You will need to collect those words and then email the phrase to Gaby.


Sorry: I don't have a word or phrase but please leave a comment and Hop to the next project.

Here is the order of the hop:

Here is some more information The presents are not received on Christmas, for Christmas is a celebration of Life of Our Savior.
The children's celebration of receiving presents is not until January 6th, "el día de Reyes", the day of the Kings, or the Wise Men Day. It is the Magi who brought the presents to the Baby Jesus, thus, they bring the toys to the boys and girls who have been good. The children place their shoes by the window, so the Magi place the present in the shoe. It the present is bigger than the shoe, it will be placed next to it. Many children, get a new pair of shoes for a present.

El dia de Reyes is celebrated with a "Merienda" consisting of hot chocolate and "The Rosca de Reyes". "La Merienda is the meal that takes. place any time between 5 P.M. and 7 P.M. it is not a heavy meal but the equivalent of "High Tea".

The Rosca de Reyes is a big oval wreath made out of egg bread (like an egg bagel, but huge) with dry fruit decorations and sprinkled sugar on top, but inside, there is a little ceramic doll which represents the Baby Jesus. The person who gets the piece of bread with the Baby, must be the Godparent of the Baby Jesus in the celebration of the Candelaria, on February 2nd.
