Seis de enero

Spanish classes celebrated January 6 known as King’s Day or Epiphany by cutting and sampling a Rosca de Reyes. The oval or circular shape of the Rosca de Reyes has two meanings: God has no beginning and no end and the crowns of the wise men who visited Jesus in Bethlehem. The decoration of dried fruit represents the jewels on the crowns. A plastic baby is placed inside the Rosca showing that Jesus was taken to Egypt to hide from Herod while the cutting of the Rosca with the knife shows the desire of Herod to kill Jesus. Whoever selects the slice with the baby inside is traditionally obligated to make tamales and host a party on February 2, El día de Candelaria (Candelmas Day).
