3 Scenes of Celebration

DocsBarcelona (February 1-6) is under preparation. But today the staff is not working. Last night Executive Producer Elena Subirà I Roca explained in three filmic scenes how Nit de Reis is performed in Catalunya, and she sent a cell phone photo of the arrival of the Three Wise Men

Tonight is Magic! Excitement all over. Kids not being able to sleep after saluting and seeing the three wise men with all their charm and luxury arround! In St. Cugat, where I come from, they arrive in a helicopter and jump to their carriages! There are real camels!!!!

Parents leaving out glasses of champagne and sweets in the sitting room for the three men to have something to eat when they come in with the presents, and water and bread crumbs for the camels so they can recocver from exhaustion.

Tomorrow morning: empty glasses, no sweets or crumbs left and loads of presents under the tree!! And a tour to all the family houses to pick even more presents!
