¡Ya Vienen Los Reyes Magos! The Three Wise Men Are Coming!

Chocolate is also a gift from the native peoples of the New World.

 Hidden inside this delicious Rosca, a plastic figurine of the Baby Jesus. The Baby is hidden because it symbolizes the need to find a secure place where Jesus could be born, a place where King Herod would not find Him.

 

Each person cuts a slice of the Rosca .  The knife symbolizes the danger in which the Baby Jesus  was in.

One by one the guests carefully inspect their slice, hopping they didn’t get the figurine.

Whoever gets the baby figurine shall be the host, and invite everyone present to a new celebration on February 2, Candelaria  or Candle mass day, and he also shall get a new Ropón or dress for the Baby Jesus of the Nativity scene.

 

The Mexican Christmas season is one of the most treasured and celebrated in Mexican culture, so its no surprise that its extended up to February 2 ! – when the nativity scene is put away, and another family dinner of delicious tamales and hot chocolate  is served with great love and happiness.
