Feliz Noche Buena!/Dia De Los Reyes!

I think it was actually last night that the 3 Kings should have visited, but I was too tired and (yes, I'm about to say it again) my wrist hurt too much to deal with shoes (for the presents), hay or a bucket of water (for the camels, you know.) But I feel a bit more mobile today, so we're still in time for a "Rosca de Reyes" and some Mexican hot chocolate this evening.

Now I just have to dig out the recipe and hope that 10 years of NOT making it won't mar the occasion :). I do, at least, remember how to make hot chocolate.

Today the holiday season pretty much ends. I won't be baking a baby Jesus in the bread, as we don't do Candle Mass/Dia de los Innocentes on February 2nd. Yes, in Mexico it's still xmas through February.

Happy Saturday!

Sounds similar to the legend of Old Bufana in Italy...there's no housecleaning involved though is there?
