In a Three Kings Day pre-celebration, city employees serve slices of a mile- long "Rosca de Reyes" or "Three Kings Pastry," to the public at the Zocalo, in downtown Mexico City, Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013. To many in Latin America, the 12th day of Christmas or Three Kings Day, is just as important as Christmas - with families gathering to eat the festive bread and exchange gifts. According to Christian tradition, Jan. 6 marks the arrival of three wise men bearing gifts for the baby Jesus. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)
