Hey there. Today, we are at my mother in law's place. For some time, she has planned a get together for the family to come for dinner and have a thing. From my understanding, it has something to do with Jesus and the three kings, but I am not completely sure. My question is, what exactly is being celebrated here? I'm not a very religious person so I dont fully understand. What I do understand is that a baby will be inside some kind of cake and the person that gets the baby in their piece needs to throw a party about a month later.
I find it a little odd that a baby needs to be baked and the person that finds the baby all chewed up and in their mouth, throws a party. I know it's customary for families of Hispanic origin, but since my mother didn't really school us in the ways of god, my bro and I were left in the dark. Someone please shed some light on this for me. Later!
