Puerto Vallarta Day of Holy Kings (Dia de Reyes)

Published on

Epiphany, also known as the Day of Holy Kings (Día de los Santos Reyes), is celebrated on January 6 in remembrance of the biblical story of the three kings’ visit to Jesus.

Even though Day of the Holy Kings falls on Saturday, January 6, 2024, it is a working day. Most businesses follow regular opening hours in Mexico.

Christians believe that 3 kings or wise men visited Jesus as a child.

In addition to getting presents from baby Jesus on Christmas Eve, Mexican children receive gifts from the three wise kings (Reyes Magos) on January 6. Streets in major cities are packed with food stalls, gifts, and outdoor parties. It is also customary to eat Rosca de Reyes, which is a wreath-shaped fruity bread baked with a figure of baby Jesus inside.

The Day of the Holy Kings is a religious observance and not a federal public holiday in Mexico. Access to streets in some cities and towns may be difficult for vehicles due to Epiphany related festivities on January 6.

About the Day of the Holy Kings

Christians believe that three kings (or wise men) – Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar – visited the child Jesus and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. This Epiphany story is celebrated in churches across Mexico and worldwide.

Three Kings’ Day is celebrated on January 6, so many families share the traditional Three Kings Day on the night of January 5 or that same day. This 2024 Three Kings Day falls on a Saturday

The city of Barcelona is preparing to receive their Majesties Melchior, Gaspar and Baltasar in the long-awaited Three Kings Parade next Friday, January 5, 2024. Barcelona City Council has announced details about the schedule and route of the magical parade.

The appearance of the Three Wise Men occurs exactly in the Gospel according to Matthew 2, 1-12, where it is reported that King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, was concerned about the appearance of wise men from the East who asked where The King of the Jews had been born.

These ideas have been added to popular tradition over the centuries. According to the Catholic religion, these men were representatives of pagan religions from neighboring towns who came to recognize that the child born in a stable was, truly, the Son of God.
