Three Kings Day Giveaway [CLOSED]

January 6 is Three Kings Day, a huge holiday in the Hispanic and Catholic world. It celebrates the day the three wise men arrived to worship the Savior and brought Him gifts. The traditional tale is that the wise men still travel around the world giving gifts to all the good children. Children leave out their shoes or bowls filled with hay and water to feed the kings' camels (or horses), and the kings leave their gifts in the shoes.

I grew up celebrating Three Kings Day in my family and at The House of Puerto Rico--San Diego with salsa music and delicious Puerto Rican food. Christmas was bigger in my house in terms of presents, but we were more excited to leave grass and water for the camels; we never left out cookies for Santa. We looked forward to being surprised with another gift or two in the morning.

It is my pleasure to share this tradition with you. I will give away three gifts to one lucky winner (since I am sponsoring this giveaway, no reviews or advertising besides the shop links are included):

1. A felt wool coin purse from The Loft Full of Goodies.



2.  A 2012 desk calendar from Jim Meissner Fine Art/James Otto Contemporary Art.



3.  A necklace from Lady Hawke Originals (you choose which pendant; chain included).

Remember Christ During Christmas is my favorite. So true! It is easy to miss on the impact that Christmas has had on our lives with all the materialism! I made sure to put up the nativity scene and read the Christmas story to my grandkids.

I appreciated the post in October explaining the EC steps you've taken with your son. I've heard about EC on parenting boards, but didn't know what that was.
