In Spain, it is traditional that the Christmas gifts to the children are brought by the Kings the night of 5 to 6 January, competing with the recent introduction of Santa Claus on Christmas customs due to the influence of other cultures.

Before, children must send a letter to the kings listing the gifts they want and deserve credit for those who receive them. It is also tradition that the night of January 5, children leave their shoes somewhere in the house, near the door, in a window. Even sweets are left to give to the Kings and water or food for the camels. The next day there are gifts or, in the case of being bad, coal in place (it’s though a sweet coal). Lately also the adults get gifts.
