 we don't make a big deal of the day like some do.  we give the kids three small gifts in their stockings, hubby will get a rosca de reyes from the mexican bakery & make mexican hot cocoa.

 that's nice.  i've thought about having all three gifts go along with the gifts the kings brought but it's hard to do.  my daughter always gets a little thing of body spray so it's kinda like mire.  when she gets a bit older hubby wants to start getting her nice jewelry for one of the gifts.

Growing up we did. Our church had a service that we went too. And we got one small gift it was normally something that went with something Santa gave us. Like a video game or new Barbie cloths. We also never to our decor down untill after 3 kings day. I haven't really done this tradition with my son though.
