During the holidays, our storytellers share customs and lore from their heritage throughout World Showcase at Epcot. A stroll around the promenade during the Holidays Around the World celebration may put you face-to-face with the good-hearted witch La Befana, known in Italy for filling children’s shoes with treats, or the jolly gift-bearer Father Christmas in the United Kingdom Pavilion. There are meet and greets with Santa and Mrs. Claus in theAmerican Adventure Pavilion, plus other legendary icons who share messages of goodwill. And celebrations of Kwanzaa and Hanukkah are showcased as well.
Los Tres Reyes Magos (or The Three Wise Men) tell guests about Christmas season traditions in Mexico. Here’s one of their holiday stories.
On January 6, Three Kings Day (or Epiphany) is celebrated – the day that Los Tres Reyes Magos arrived at the stable where Jesus was born. The night before, children leave out shoes in hopes the three kings wil leave them toys and presents as they pass in the night.
