The Three Kings parade in Javea, Spain brought the whole village out to celebrate. Christians in Spain celebrate the eve of Epiphany each January 5th, when tradition says the three kings brought gifts to the infant Jesus. The festivities continue today with the tres reyes arriving in town, by boat or donkey, horse or camel, and parading through the streets. Upon returning home, children leave their shoes by the door, usually filled with treats for the animals, and find gifts from the kings left in exchange.
