It’s me again. Today is a great day. The Carver will finish my face this week except for the eyes. He must seal the wood to stabilize it enough to do the fine detail. Until then he's working on my attire. The rest of my friends are pleased with their progress. We all think we are the Carver’s favorite. I found this story very interesting. Till next week.
THE MAGI – Argentina
The children of Argentina practice the custom of putting a shoe beneath the Christmas tree – or perhaps beside their bed – when awaiting the Magi. The Wise Men arrive on the night of January 5th, the eve of The Epiphany, which is when the people of Argentina celebrate the holidays. Just as the children of North America leave cookies and milk for Santa, Argentinean children leave hay and water outside the main door of the house, so that the horses of the Magi can be refreshed during their journey.
