Three Kings Day, El Día De Los Reyes, is a traditional Latin American and Spanish holiday of gift giving, parades, and fun for all ages. The holiday celebrates the 12th and final day of Christmas when the Three Kings or Wise Men reached the baby Jesus to present their gifts.

In a parranda, a caroling parade, a group of family and friends arrive unannounced to asaltar their friends with singing and guitarras, tamboriles, or maracas. After waking their friends the whole group of merrymakers moves on to parrandear at other houses until dawn.
