Los Reyes Magos visitaron Casares
I found this photo on our town hall website.
We were all there joining in the scrum for sweets. If you look carefully at the bottom right-hand corner you will see my youngest daughter (in pink) with her back to the camera. She managed to fill a shopping bag with sweets. On getting back to the house afterwards, we found an entire tin of sweets from last year.
As a nice touch the Three Kings gave each child a set of coloured pencils. Ours will come in useful, parents have to pay for school books and materials. This school year we were looking at 100 euro per child until the Junta de Andalucía and the Ayuntamiento stepped in with grants. These grants still only apply to primary schools, so I'll have to start saving for their secondary school education now.
