One of the perks of living in Spain is that we still have a whole week worth of Christmas break. You see, in Spanish tradition the three wise men visit and bring the children toys on the night of January 5th. There's a big parade when they march in and they throw hard candy at the children. It's kind of a big deal. You can see photos of that parade here.
I always feel a little bad for those children because, clearly, Santa is better? One of the many reasons is because by visiting on the 24th, you actually have time to play with your new toys before going back to school. It's like someone didn't think it through. Another weird thing is that in the Spanish translation the three wise men are neither old or wise. Instead they are both kings and wizards. It's like a mashup of The Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter. Which actually sounds kind of awesome now that I think about it.
Well, still in the holiday spirit I ran into this on Alex Beadon's facebook profile. These kids are hilarious, and I am pretty sure their parents are going on 2012's naughty list.
I need to use this on my friend's kids next year! ;)
