Nacogdoches library celebrates Dia de Los Reyes

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Tomorrow marks the official end of the Christmas season for many cultures with the Epiphany.

The Judy B. McDonald Public Library in Nacogdoches celebrated its second annual Dia de Los Reyes Celebration tonight.

The celebration is a Hispanic tradition that commemorates the arrival of the Three Wise Men on Jan 6th. Children leave socks out the night before and wake up to find candy and gifts in them in the morning.

The library decided to take the socks tradition to whole new level and held a drive that collected socks and clothes for children staying at the East Texas Family Crisis Center.

The library celebrated the holiday tonight by inviting local children to partake in games, crafts, and the traditional Rosca de Reyes cake.
