We have arrived in Malaga Spain expecting a the celebratory holiday season to be over, only to find out that here is Spain most children get their gifts on January 6th, and on January 5th there is a big parade in town. It is the day the children write letters to the magic kings and three people dress in costumes and ride around on horses, followed by decorated floats, giving sweets and small presents to the crowds of children. One blog post that I read promised 11 tones of sweet treats will be given out during the parade!
As you can see from the images above the streets are decorated with lots of beautiful lights, everything looks magical. This and the warm weather has made this a wonderful stop on our Christmas tour that began with our first Christmas Market in Vienna Austria Nov 15, 2014 almost 8 weeks ago!
I have never seen a King before, so I am off to the parade to see if I can catch a glimpse of the Three Kings and maybe a little candy!
