Cookies for the Three Wise Men

One of my most vivid memories from childhood is “ The Three Wise Men night” or “ Noche de Reyes” in Spanish.

My mother used to prepare cookies and Clementine’s for the wise men and water for the camels. The ritual was fascinating!!!

It was such an excitement that I could hardly go to sleep! But I went to bed looking forward to the next morning.

Funny enough when I woke up I did not go to see the presents. I run to the kitchen to make sure that the wise men had had their cookies and Clementine’s and the camels had drunk their water.

Tonight I am preparing the food and the water like my mother used to do. Tomorrow in the morning I will make sure that the cookies, Clementine’s and water are gone.

I wish you all a great night and that The Three Wise Men brings you many gifts.

Now it is time to go to bed ….

Hola Ingrid! El ritual es fascinante! Tendrían que dejar a los niños creer que los Reye existen mucho mas tiempo para que disfrutaran mas de momentos de estos, verdad? Besos
