Being Puerto Rican /Three Kings Day.

I actually have plans tonight believe it or not. I am going with a friend from work (Tonja) and a friend from VA (Beatriz) to a three kings celebration sponsored by ASPIRA in DC. This holiday is much bigger in the Hispanic community than in the US. I think they call it Epiphany here in the States. It is the day when the three kings came to visit the baby Jesus. Most people dont remember that they came after he was born not the day of his birth. I think that has to do with the nativity scenes people put under their Christmas trees as the three kings are usually represented at the manger, people associate their presence with the minute Jesus was born.

I haven't gone out during the week in a very , very long time. And as I have the day off tomorrow I can stay out as late as I want :) The event is free all they requested was a donation of a children's book for their afterschool programs. I am looking forward to Spanish food, which I dont eat enough of unless I go home. I even got dressed up for the occasion and got a haircut as well. Woo Hoo! I get to be a PR tonite :)

Go 'head with your bad butter pecan rican self!
