El Dia de los Reyes Magos

El Dia de los Reyes Magos is celebrated in many countries throughout the Americas.  Puerto Ricans celebrate with a caroling block party called alsaltos navideños or parrandas.  While the caroling starts at the beginning of Advent and lasts throughout the season, January 6 is particularly celebrated with song.  Carolers go house to house, enjoying holiday treats such as papaya sweets, Spanish nougat, marzipan, and of course rum, beer, and coquito, spiked Puerto Rican eggnog.  Nuyoricans (that’s Puerto Ricans living in New York) participate in the annual parade hosted by El Museo del Barrio in the Bronx.
