Freila Three Kings Procession Andalucia Spain

Late this afternoon all over Spain the Three Kings Procession took place. I had the privilage of taking part in the procession in the tiny rural village of Freila in Andalucia. It has to be pointed out that this procession is not put on for the tourist, it is to mark 12th night and Epiphany tomorrow and in the case of Freila is very authentic. The three Kings travelled around the village on the back of a tractor and distributed sweets and presents to children (and adults) of the village.
Tonight all the children have to clean their shoes and leave them at the door so that the Three Kings can deliver their presents. The children then open them all in the morning, much like Christmas morning.

It was so nice to see that despite the economic problems that Spain is suffering that traditions like this continue and are very well supported.
