Christmas Eve
Traditional Christmas celebrations in Spanish-speaking countries mainly take place on the night of Nochebuena, Christmas Eve. These include a large Christmas meal, going to Midnight Mass, Misa del Gallo, if you are a Catholic, and, in Spain, watching the seasonal message from the King on TV. Presents are traditionally given at the Epiphany by los Reyes Magos, the Three Kings, but due to ever-increasing Anglo-Saxon influence some people also give presents on Christmas Day.
