2-and collect a letter or word from the blogs
3-email the phrase to scrapabookaholic at hotmail dot com
4-(DO NOT enter the phrase on the comment- email it to scrapabookaholic@hotmail.com)

Here is a bit of info on how it is celebrated in México. 

The presents are not received on Christmas, for Christmas is a celebration of Life of Our Savior.
The children's celebration of receiving presents is not until January 6th, "el día de Reyes", the day of the Kings, or the Wise Men Day. It is the Magi who brought the presents to the Baby Jesus, thus, they bring the toys to the boys and girls who have been good. The children place their shoes by the window, so the Magi place the present in the shoe. It the present is bigger than the shoe, it will be placed next to it.

El dia de Reyes is celebrated with a "Merienda" consisting of hot chocolate and "The Rosca de Reyes". "La Merienda is the meal that takes. place any time between 5 P.M. and 7 P.M. it is not a heavy meal but the equivalent of "High Tea".

The Rosca de Reyes is a big oval wreath made out of egg bread (like an egg bagel, but huge) with dry fruit decorations and sprinkled sugar on top, but inside, there is a little ceramic/plastic doll which represents the Baby Jesus. The person who gets the piece of bread with the Baby, must be the Godparent of the Baby Jesus in the celebration of the Candelaria, on February 2nd
 
Well, even though I am Hispanic, I have to admit that this holiday was some what of a Learning experience for me.  I had always seen the "Roscas" but never really knew what they were for or what they represented.  So for my project I decided to make a "Rosca"! (Out of paper of course) LOL!!  I think it came out okay.  I also wanted to make a card to go with the Rosca.  Well I hope you enjoy this:

    I am one of your newest followers! I just found your site so I can't tell you what I think would be great to see. But keep up the great work! You have a wonderful talent! Thank you as well for the Rosca idea. I am Hispanic and until this blog hop, had never even heard of El dia de Reyes :-) I guess that is the by product of being born and raised in Michigan!

  86. Hey, I am new to blog's and blog hops. I tried to post yesterday but can't see it, so I guess it didn't "take". I am a follower....had trouble setting up an account for that as well...(i guess this is why my camera is point and shoot, i would screw it up if i had to adjust anything). I don't really have any suggestions for your blog, except I would like to know how to use the chaulk that I have. I haven't found any instructions that I can figure out yet. Thanks
