 In Spain, A Kingly Ring With A Hidden Surprise Wraps Up The HolidaysJames Badcock

The first time I visited my in-laws in Spain, they fed me a sweet, doughy treat that, for a brief moment, made me wonder whether they were trying to kill me.

You see, it was Jan. 6, el Dia de Reyes – or Three Kings Day — which commemorates the visit of the magi to the baby Jesus. My hospitable in-laws had laid out a delicious roscón, a ring-shaped cake delicately flavored with orange blossom water. But as I tucked into this scrumptious offering, my teeth struck something very, very hard.

That something was a small porcelain elephant, which I kept as a treasure for some years. And while some might consider it a choking hazard, in Spain, finding the figurine in my food was a sign of good luck. Such was my introduction to the magic and mystery of the roscón de Reyes.    To read entire story click here.
