What is “Rosca de Reyes”?

0

Rosca de Reyes is a Mexican tradition. During Three Kings’ Day, Mexicans serve Rosca de Reyes, or King’s Cake. “Rosca” means wreath and “reyes” means kings. The Rosca de Reyes has an oval shape to symbolize a crown and has a small doll inside which represents baby Jesus. The doll figure symbolizes the hiding of the infant Jesus from King Herod’s troops.

In Mexican tradition, finding the baby Jesus in your slice of Rosca de Reyes means that you (and the other people who get a baby in their slice) will host a party on February 2nd.

We celebrated this tradition with Casa Mexico today . They offered Rosca de Reyes, hot chocolate, Latin American tales about the Three Kings by Alberto Susano, and kids and adults had pictures taken with Melchor, Gaspar, and Balthazar.

Rosca de Reyes’ event was held at Cspace King Edward, 4th Floor 1721 29 Ave. SW, Calgary.

¿Qué es la Rosca de Reyes?

La Rosca de Reyes es una tradición mexicana. Durante el Día de Reyes Magos, los mexicanos sirven la Rosca de Reyes. La Rosca de Reyes tiene una forma ovalada para simbolizar una corona y tiene un pequeño muñeco en el interior que representa al niño Jesús. La figura del muñeco simboliza el ocultamiento del niño Jesús de las tropas del rey Herodes.

En la tradición mexicana, encontrar al niño Jesús en tu porción de Rosca de Reyes significa que tú (y las demás personas que lo encuentren en su porción) organizarán una fiesta el 2 de febrero.

Hoy celebramos esta tradición con Casa México. Ofrecieron Rosca de Reyes, chocolate caliente, cuentos latinoamericanos sobre los Reyes Magos por Alberto Susano y los niños y adultos se tomaron fotos con Melchor, Gaspar y Balthazar.
