La Cavalcata dels Reis Mags – Christmas performance

As I told you in another article before, in Spain we have the 3 Magic Kings that came from the Orient to bring gifts for the children who have behaved well and carbon to the bad ones.

‘La Cavalcata’ is the most fucking WONDERFUL performance on Christmas, it takes place the afternoon before the night when ‘the Kings’ give out all the presents to all the children in the country. La Cavalcata thrills me very much in the sense that it makes me remember the hope I had these days when I was a child and I didn’t know the real truth. I have to admit I like to go to ‘la Cavalcata’ to enjoy the show but also to enjoy the magic and awesome faces of the children while watching the performance. Trust me, it is very special and emotional.

Every year the three magical kings arrive at Barcelona’s harbor by boat; the harbor is full of children looking for them and trying to get a smile from the kings to ensure they will bring them all the presents. After a short ceremony, an amazing parade starts, with a large line of carriages full of candies. Every king has his own carriage, among the other carriages, while the king’s pages pick up all the letters from the children with their wishes and desired presents.
