Los Reyes Magos in parades throughout Tenerife for Kings’ Eve on 5 January

In Spain, it is not just Father Christmas who delivers presents to all good Spanish girls and boys, it is also, indeed primarily, Sus Majestades Los Reyes Magos, their Majesties the three Wise Kings of the traditional and familiar nativity story who brought gifts to the baby Jesus. In recent years, Father Christmas has become increasingly popular, with many Spanish children now asking for, and expecting, presents from both sources, but the arrival of Los Reyes Magos is still the most special of occasions.
