The Three Wise Men, 'los Reyes Magos' Spanish,—Melchior, Gaspar, and Balthasar—arrive on their camels to the Canary Islands bringing the presents to all the good boys and girls every year. The biggest parades take place in the capitals Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The streets are decorated with lights and Christmas decorations. This fiesta is very much anticipated by children. They usually write cards with their wishes for the next year and try to give them to the wise man they like most.
