three kings day

On the 6th of January we celebrate the Three Kings Day here in Switzerland. It marks the end of the Christmas season and celebrates the visit of the Wise men to the Baby Jesus. To honor this arrival, a Three Kings Cake is made and if you visit any bakeries or supermarkets right now in Switzerland, you will see Three King Cakes for sale. The Three Kings Cake is a sweet bread, similar to a Challah or braided bread and shaped like a flower. In addition, a King is hidden in one of the pieces and whoever gets the piece with the King inside is crowned King for this day.
