Children are dressed as kings in the Three Kings Day Parade in East Harlem on January 6, 2012 in New York City. The parade celebrates the Feast of the Epiphany, also known as Three Kings Day, marking the Biblical story of the visit of three kings to Bethlehem to visit the baby Jesus, revealing his divinity.

Finally, the holidays are over, you can put away the wrapping paper, store the decorations, and relax. 

Well, not quite. Sunday is Dia de los Reyes Magos, or Three Kings' Day, an important holiday in Latin America and much of Europe and Russia.

Here to tell us about it is Stuart Ashman, who runs the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach.
