Happy Three Kings' Day! Maligayang Tatlong Hari!, Feliz Dia de Reyes! (2008)

Christmas officially ends on the Feast of the Three Kings' (Los Tres Reyes or Tatlong Hari, in Tagalog), also known as the Feast of the Epiphany. The Feast of the Three Kings was traditionally commemorated on Jan. 6 but is now celebrated on the first Sunday after the New Year. Some children leave their shoes out, so that the Three Kings would leave behind gifts like candy or money inside. Jan. 6 is also known in other countries as Twelfth Night, and the "Twelve Days of Christmas" referred to in the Christmas carol are the twelve days between Christmas Day (December 25) and the coming of the Three Kings (January 6).
