This holiday celebrates the three wise men - Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar - who journeyed to Bethlehem with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh on the night of Jesus' birth. As with Christmas Eve, this is a day for children to open presents, and for gatherings of friends and family. One of the signature treats associated with the holiday is a sweet bread called rosca de reyes, which is readily available at Starbucks, as well as all local bakeries. Miniature figures of the baby Jesus are hidden inside the bread, and the person who finds one first is expected to have a tamales party on Candlemas, February 2nd. Candlemas marks the end of the long Christmas season in Cabo San Lucas, but one of the heights of the tourist season, as snowbirds continue to flee frigid temperatures north of the border for sunshine, beaches, whale watching, golf and other activities not normally associated with wintry cheer.
