Three Wise Men Ring Bread Tradition

Every year, on the January 5, along with families all across Mexico we gather around the table to share the rosca de reyes, with friends and family.  A little plastic doll representing Jesus is placed inside the bread.  The person who receives a piece of bread with this doll inside has to make the tamales used in the fiesta de la Candelaria on February 2.  This celebration is the last of our Christmas festivities. The rosca is decorated with pieces of dry fruit, and sometimes is filled with nuts, figs, and more fruit. We served it with Hot chocolate or Coffee. This is a great excuse to spend some quality time with the people you love the most! :)
