Christians across the Bronx celebrate Three Kings Day

Christians across the Bronx celebrated Three Kings Day Thursday, the 12th day of Christmas.

Three Kings Day marks the day the three wise kings presented the infant Jesus with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. It's a popular holiday in Hispanic cultures and is celebrated by exchanging gifts. A ceremony was held at Lincoln Hospital Auditorium to celebrate the holiday.

Christians say the story of the three wise kings teaches tolerance and symbolizes the equality of the races.
