Adding to the Christmas events in the Triangle are Three Kings Day (Día de Reyes) events.
These traditional celebrations are expressions of Epiphany, which marks when, according to the nativity story, three wise men visited baby Jesus, bearing gifts.
Three Kings Day (and Twelfth Night) mark the end of the Christmas season (although one celebration, below, is being held earlier in the season.)
