WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE

The Three Kings (Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar) represented Europe, Arabia and Africa respectively.

They came from afar, searching for Baby Jesus and brought them presents: Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.

These valuable items were standard gifts to honor a king or deity in the ancient world: gold as a precious metal, frankincense as perfume or incense, and myrrh as anointing oil.

~~We Three Kings~~

Story behind the song
There is so much mystery surrounding the story of the Three Kings. Who were they? Where did they come from? What relation did they have to each other? We only really know what (or Who) they were after.

Their only guides were ancient scripture and a bright star. They would not give up until they found the Savior of the world, no matter the cost.

Our arrangement of this traditional Christmas song “We Three Kings” is a tribute to them, their tenacity, and their Noble Purpose.

THE EVE BEFORE THE EPIPHANY

Tomorrow is my real Christmas celebration.

It’s Three Kings Day.

As a kid, I’d gather grass and collect it in a box.

I’d put that under my bed and when I woke up the next morning, my presents would be there.

The camels had eaten the grass and the Three Kings had left me my presents.

It’s something that we still celebrate with our grad-children.

Gathering grass today and waiting for tomorrow.

~Ten facts about the Feast of the Epiphany~

The three Kings (Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar) represented Europe, Arabia and Africa respectively.
Hundreds of years ago, roast lamb was traditionally served at Epiphany in honor of Christ and the three Kings’ visit.
Whoever finds the small statue of a baby Jesus hidden inside their slice of the Rosca de Reyes throws a party on Candlemas in February.
In some European countries, children leave their shoes out the night before to be filled with gifts, while others leave straw for the three Kings’ horses.
According to Greek Orthodox Church’s traditions, a priest will bless the waters by throwing a cross into it as worshipers try to retrieve it.
In Bulgaria too, Eastern Orthodox priests throw a cross in the sea and the men dive in – competing to get to it first.
In Venice a traditional regatta that started as a joke in the late 1970’s has been incorporated in the celebrations of Epiphany Day.
In Prague, there is a traditional Three Kings swim to commemorate Epiphany Day at the Vltava River.
In New York, El Museo del Barrio has celebrated and promoted the Three Kings’ Day tradition with an annual parade for more than three decades. Thousands take part in the procession featuring camels, colorful puppets and floats.
The day’s activities involve singing holiday carols called aguinaldos.
