Hello all my friends, today I'm coming back from my vacation. How are you? I'm happy to write you again.
I'd like to tell you we celebrate the Three Kings day here in Brazil too. But it's a bit different from Mexican celebration.
Here people use to tell the Three Kings story like a play. They wear beautiful costumes and go house to house singing and playing. The owner of the house give them some cakes, or candies or other foods. After the visit all the houses and tell people Christ was born, they make a kind of party next to the church, with the food they get in the houses they visited.
See some pictures for the "Folia de Reis", as this tradition called here in Brazil:

Moreover, did you know Santa Claus' story? There is a story which tell that Nicolau (Santa) was the fourth king that must visit Jesus. But he went late, when he arrived in Belem, Jesus' parents had gone way because of Herodes. Nicolau was so sad he couldn't give his present to Jesus that he promissed give presents to all children in the world every year.
Well, that's all. I'm happy to be back.
See you friends!!!
