At the time of King Herod, Magi from the East came to Jerusalem: Melchior, who was an elder, Gaspar, a young white man, and Balthasar, a black man and a beard.

On his arrival, the wise men told the people of Jerusalem who had been born king of the Jews in Bethlehem While all the people that have alarmed Herod gave them permission to travel to Bethlehem in search of the boy and the way a star guided them to the cradle where the baby was with her mother.
The three kings were glad to see him and offered their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. After that, they returned to their country by another way, afraid of the reaction of Herod. Since then, the 6th of January is celebrated in many countries by the arrival of the Magi. On this day, is considered a tradition of giving gifts to children who have behaved and coal to those who were ill during the year.
