Tres Reyes

My Hispanic culture is something I treasure enough that I even kept my last name when I got married. I felt as though my last name helped me hold onto that culture. On January 6, most Hispanics celebrate Día de Tres Reyes. This holiday commemorates the day The Three Wise men found Jesus in the manger and gave him 3 gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh. Children write to the wise men asking for gifts that are then found on Tres Reyes (Three Kings) underneath their bed and in or near their shoes.

Tres Reyes

My children learn about this tradition in the 1st grade year and love telling others about the tradition. We wanted to help them understand and celebrate the importance of the holiday as well, so we decided to pick up 3 family gifts. Since we already own and love the Xbox and Kinect, we grabbed a few games the kids could all enjoy.  Besides, Xbox consoles, games, accessories, memberships, and more all make great Three Kings gifts. They love watching the game show Wipeout, so we picked up Wipeout 3 for the Kinect. Plus, since Angry Birds is a pop sensation for their techy generation, we picked up the Angry Birds Trilogy for the Xbox as well. Finally, since the kids enjoy playing a few games on Xbox Live, we grabbed a gift card with plenty of XBox Live points on it to keep them entertained for a while. And, yes, many of your Xbox LIVE apps work in Mexico. I am sure this will bring them great joy on the morning of  Tres Reyes… as well as help them stay entertained the last few days of their holiday break.
