What a week. I've been sick, inching along at a dead end job, and....I sent out a million queries because of the first two things I mentioned, which I would not suggest anyone do. Here's a hilarious post at Chip MacGregor illustrating my point why you should not query while pissed off at work or sick. =) He also has a great series on strategic planning. Enjoy!

The Feast of the Three Kings also known as the Epiphany takes place every year on January 6th. It is an intricate part of Puerto Rican folklore. Traditionally, this day is very important, especially for children, for it is on this eve that they will receive their gifts. On the feast of the Epiphany, the Three kings visited the newly born Christ Child in Bethlehem bearing him gifts. This tradition is repeated and reflected in present day with the belief that on this eve the 3 Kings will visit every good child to deliver them gifts. Tradition states that on the Eve of the Epiphany children collect hay, straw or grass and place it in boxes or containers under their beds. This gesture is a gift of food for the Kings' Horses while they rest in between deliveries. Note:(we have no Camels in PR). If a child is good for the past year he will receive candies, sweets or toys. If the child was misbehaved or naughty he would instead find a lump of dirt or charcoal in his box. This tradition is much older than that of Santa's visit on Christmas Eve.
Just some Random info. In most countries Celebrations last way past the 25th. But using the words of my son's friend as he calls for help..."If I hear one more Christmas song I'm going to blow a cap in my face." For some awful reason this cracked me up.
Have a great weekend!
