|Three Kings Day bread|
I asked the proprietoress at the lavanderia I do business with what it was all about because she had one of these sweet breads sitting on her counter. She told me there would be big fiestas in the city that evening. Why I asked. She didn't tell me, perhaps she didn't know, or didn't want to explain because my Spanish isn't very good and she doesn't speak English. I don't know and wasn't too concerned because I could always google to find out.
Google I did. January 6 is the day, so the story goes, that the three kings came bearing gifts to the manager. Another day to party, another day for children to receive presents.
