THREE KINGS DAY TRADITION CONTINUES
Local McDonald’s owner/operator Tony Rodríguez joined forces with Councilman Mark
Gjonaj and Bishop Ebony Kirkland, president of the Bronx Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,
to celebrate the 12th Annual Three Kings Day in the Bronx, where the Three Kings gave toys
and hats and gloves to the children attending. Three Kings Day, or the Feast of the Epiphany,
is a holiday in Latin America, Spain, and celebrated by the Hispanic community in the United
States. Rodríguez has been celebrating the Three Kings Day community event consecutively
for 12 years, which has become a tradition in the Bronx. This year, it was different given
the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the celebration consisted of an organized, socially
distanced outdoor event, where the children and their parents lined up for their turn to
receive their gifts. While waiting to see the Three Kings and get to the front of the line to
pick their choice of toys, everyone received hot chocolate, McDonald’s fresh baked cookies,
3 Kings activity pamphlets, educational storybooks. The event concluded with everyone in
the family receiving a blessing from the religious leaders in attendance,along with a cross
bracelet that commemorated the day as the families made their way back home.
