"Tonight we celebrate the Three Wise Men Eve. This is a lovely family tradition brought 5 centuries ago by spaniards to all Latinamerican contemporary countries.
The center of celebration is to share an elliptic shaped bread. Inside of it there are hidden gifts. In Mexico and other countries we use to hide small Jesus newborn figures.
This tradition seems to have its origins in roman saturnalia. Whatever, in Europe the celebration included Latin countries, mainly Spain, France and Portugal.
In Mexico also is a common practice that those who find a figure in their peace of bread, are committed to make and give tamales for everybody on February 2nd.
Tomorrow many children in Mexico will have toys given thorough the night by the Three Wise Men, as they did with Jesus giving gold and frankincense and myrrh.'"
