In much of Latin America Three Kings Day is celebrated by children.  On January 5th children leave their shoes outside the door along with grass and water for the camels. The next day children wake to numerous gifts left by the Three Kings.  Across Latin America and the United States Dia DE Los Reyes is celebrated with parades in parties. In Harlem, New York a huge parade with puppets of the Three Kings marks the day. In Mexico one of the most important elements of Three Kings is the edible wreaths.  The edible wreath is a large oval cake filled with fruit representing the Kings crown "Kings Cake."
