For those Baldo readers who don’t read Spanish, “El Día de Los Reyes” means “the day of the kings”. As Gracie said, that’s the day the Magi arrived to visit Jesucristo, as Spanish-speaking people refer to Christ.
Unfortunately, where I live in central PA (9 miles from Hershey), many of the pure German-ancestry folk have long since taken down their decorations, some before New Year’s Eve.
I’m Scots-Irish and German Protestant, but I, too, wait until Epiphany (12th Night) until I take my Christmas decorations down.
