Feast of the adoration of the magi
January 06, 2014 - Posted by

The Catholic feast known as the “Epiphany of the lord – the adoration of the Magi” is better known in Peru as “The Descent of Kings“, “Easter of Kings” or “the Visit of Kings“. This Catholic feast day evoked the three wise men Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar, who went from the East to Bethlehem, guided by a star, in order to honor and give offerings to the future King of the Jews (Jesus).

In Peru, formerly the feast of “Descent of Kings” had a different connotation. Originally, it was not at all related to gifts as it is now. In times past, on the 6th January each ornament and figure of nativities was dismounted to be saved until the next Christmas. During this celebration, a “Godfather” for each image was chosen, who, after waiting his turn in a row, had to take the sculpture of the nativity to be saved it, and then he had to give an amount of money. Especially the Godfathers of the main figures took pains to give a significant amount as the amount donated was announced aloud to the audience attending this rite. All this celebration culminated with a big family party.
