Really? Well, it makes sense, since it was the Three Wise Men that brought gifts to Jesus. Here in Brazil, January 6th is time to take out all the Christmas decorations.

well,you're right,but i think somehow it's very sensible of her,if she weras sth again and again it's because she rather has a visit everyday unlike other princesses that we only see sth of them in 2-3 weeks,she shows real class when it comes to,we've seen this in some occasions like danish royal wedding

Yes, in Portugal, the 6th of January is celebrated just eating "bolo-rei" (a cake of French origin -"la Galette des Rois"- in form of crown, decorated and stuffed with crystallized fruits) and singing the "reisadas" or "janeiras". But in contrast to the countries of Portuguese culture, in Spain and in the countries of Spanish culture, the Twelfth Day is sufficiently commemorated, and it's even the main party of the Christmas period. The party represents the arrival of the Three Wise Men:

- the Arab Baltazar, who took incense, that meant the deity of Jesus;

- the Indian Belchior, who took gold, meaning his royalty;

- the Ethiopian Caspar, who took myrrh, symbolizing the humanity of the just-born Jesus.

In Spain, on the 6th of January there are parades with the three wise men through all over the country, during which they throw bullets and candies for the children. It's also on this day that the children open the presents that, they believe, were left by the Wise Men, during the night.

Don Felipe and Doña Letizia spend the weekend in Asturias

Princes de Asturias are again at home. Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will spend the weekend in Asturias, where they arrived during afternoon from yesterday. His first visit, since it has happened in other occasions, went more concretely to Sardéu and to house of the grandparents of the future queen: Menchu Alvarez of Valle and Jose Luis Ortiz. With them they spent his first hours in the region, before leaving to have supper, and in their house they spent the night.

In principle and according to they confirmed to this newspaper official sources, the pair has predicted to enjoy the weekend in the region and, sure the company of the grandparents of Doña Letizia, whom not yet they had seen these Christmases, because the indicated dates more passed them in Madrid, that yes, in company of the maternal family of the Princess and, of course, of the Kings.

Before visiting Asturias, they enjoyed days in a ski resort, so and as it commented Don Felipe this same week after the acts of Military Passover. That day joked in addition with the journalists, to whom he informed into the great progresses of his wife on the skis.

The one that began yesterday it deals with the sixth visit of His Heights Reales since Saturday 1 of November of 2003 the House of the King made public the commitment of the Asturian journalist with the Heir.

It is, in addition, the fifth that they makes with private character thanks to estrechísima relation that unites to them with this earth. The escapes of Don Felipe and Letizia Ortiz to Asturias then begin to be almost normal. In the agenda of those who are called to become Kings of Spain appears this region have or not in her an official residence.

Happy in the region
Sources near the pair assure that they enjoy the freedom and the absence of protocol that they find during their stays deprived in Asturias.
