Three Kings Day, also called the Epiphany in the U.S., will be celebrated from January 1-6. Three Kings Day is an important religious observance in Latin America and Spain as it celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men in Bethlehem to honor the newborn baby in the manger. In Hispanic countries and homes, Three Kings Day is celebrated on January 6 and gifts are exchanged then instead of December 25, which many regard as too commercialized to be spiritually meaningful. Three Kings Day, in addition to gift giving, places an equally important emphasis on food.
Christmas at SeaWorld Orlando will celebrate Three Kings Day with festive cuisine and experiences that will honor this important Latin American tradition. The Three Kings will also appear, leading camels as they proceed to a stage where they will be available for photos.
