La vida de Annie

Feliz día de los Reyes.

Big day in the Spanish world - bigger than Christmas - marking the day the Three Kings (not Santa) bring all the children their gifts. It's traditional to celebrate Epiphany with a Roscón de reyes, a circular cake decorated with candied fruit and containing two artifacts - a small figure (good luck - you get to be a king for the day) and a fava bean (you have to pay for the meal).
I haven't cut it yet and have memories of almost choking on the sixpence in the Christmas pud as a child.
