Rosca de Reyes

Rosca de reyes (kings' ring) is a Mexican cake traditionally eaten to celebrate the Epiphany. It is traditionally eaten on January 6th, during the celebration of the Dia de Reyes (Wise Men Day). This is the day when children get presents from the Three Wise Men (not from Santa). The tradition of placing a trinket (figurine of the Christ Child) in the cake is very old. The baby Jesus, when hidden in the bread, represents the flight of Jesus, fleeing from King Herod's evil plan. Whoever finds the small baby Jesus is blessed and must take it (a representation of baby Jesus) to the nearest church on the 2nd of February (Dia de la Candelaria). In the Mexican culture, this person also has to organize a celebration and provide tamales and atole to the guests.

Dia de los Muertos

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Dia de los Muertos), is a holiday celebrated in Latin America and by Latin Americans living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on the gathering of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

The celebration occurs on November 2nd in connection with the Catholic holiday of All Saints' Day (November 1st) and All Souls' Day (November 2nd).
Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, special made bread and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these items as gifts.
