On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, twelve drummers drumming. . .
Happy Little Christmas, or as it’s really called, The Epiphany or for those of us who are Latin, Los Reyes. “Reyes” means “kings” and today is the day that the three kings, or Magi or the Three Wise Men, came to give the baby Jesus an assortment of gifts.
Traditionally, the day of Los Reyes was celebrated with parades and with the arrival of the Los Reyes Mago on Christmas morning with gifts. As a kid, we always woke up to some small gifts that the Reyes had left us. One year my sister woke everyone up since she had heard someone on the roof and had seen a camel’s eye looking in through our bedroom window. LOL!
We still celebrate Los Reyes in my home and as soon as the family is awake, we’ll open up the small gifts they have brought.
As for today’s prize, as you may recall “Reyes” is also the last name of FBI Agent Diana Reyes from THE CALLING/REBORN series. I’ll be gifting someone with electronic THE COMPLETE CALLING COLLECTION which contains the first six books in the series as well as DESIRE CALLS. A perfect way to get ready for the release of BORN TO SERVE in April 2013.
Happy Dia de Los Reyes!
