Growing up, Christmas was such a fun time. We celebrated Christmas a little different than most Americans.
In our house, we celebrated Christmas the American way, with Santa giving us gifts. And we celebrated it the Cuban way, with “Los Reyes Magos” or translated in English as the Magical Kings. They represented the 3 wise men that brought Jesus treasures and gifts 12 days after his birth.
I remember feeling pretty special that we got hit twice with gifts. I never remember my grandparents asking me what Santa got me for Christmas. They always asked me, “What did the Kings get you for Christmas?”
Christmas time brings back some great memories with the people that I love. These memories will always be with me and I look forward to creating my new ones.
