Three Kings Day

First grade students celebrated the 12th Day of Christmas, otherwise known as Three Kings Day (or Old Christmas in Appalachia). As is the tradition in many Spanish speaking communities, students enjoyed a King Cake, shaped round like a crown and decorated with green, purple, and gold – symbolizing faith, justice, and power. Each student found a “baby” (jelly bean) in their cake, so all of them were royalty for a day.
