In some countries, the festival is just as important as Christmas Day itself.
In Spain and some Latin American countries, people day the day off work on January 6 and hold parades and fireworks displays in the streets.
Some even believe it is not Santa Claus who bring gifts for children, but in fact the three wise men.
The night before Epiphany, children leave out drinks for the three wise men in the same way you leave out a mince pie for Santa, and fill their shoes with straw for the kings’ horses to eat.
