The 3 Kings Festival, 5th January in Spain, on the eve of present giving time on January 6th. The celebrations start at dusk, so it's a good idea to be in place before then. Lorries and floats of various descriptions slowly trawl through the main streets. children, dressed in the vogue of the float, hurl sweets, footballs and other small presents to the waiting crowds. The children in the crowds wait impatiently, carrier bags and upturned umbrellas opened to catch the bounty.
