Thanks to Colorin Colorado (which is on The Best Ways To Keep-Up With Current ELL/ESL/EFL News & Research list) I was reminded that this is Three Kings Day.  This holiday is celebrated in many Latino households — often more enthusiastically than Christmas Day.

Here are some resources on Three Kings Day, also known as the Epiphany and El Dia de los Reyes (some of the articles aren’t particularly accessible to English Language Learners, but can be modified by teachers):

An article pointed out by Colorin Colorado that appeared in The Connecticut Post about the day.

CBS News has another article with a couple of nice photos, too.

Here’s an article in about how retail stores “cash-in” on the tradition.USA Today

Here’s a short slideshow from the Orange County Register about foods prepared for the day.

Here are some photos of a Three Kings Celebration in Spain.

The New York TImes has a slideshow of a Three Kings Day parade In Harlem.

Here are a series of photos from the Sacramento Bee showing how the day is celebrated around the world.

I’ll be adding these resources to The Best Places To Learn About Christmas, Hanukkah, & Kwanzaa.
