Boxing Day takes place on December 26, the day after Christmas. This holiday dates back many years, although historians are not exactly sure when. Boxing Day's name is a mystery but many can attribute the name to the giving of gifts or charity donations that took place after Christmas day. London is an excellent city to visit for Boxing Day because it has a lot of places to visit such as the London Eye, The Crown Jewels, and the famous clock tower called Big Ben. There are also many shopping deals available on this day in England.


Three Kings' Day takes place on January 6 and is also known as Dia De Los Reyes in Spanish. Three Kings' Day is named after the three kings who visited Jesus in Bethlehem once he was born and gave him gifts. Kids will put their shoes out on the night of January 5 and receive toys the next morning. The day is also celebrated by eating a king cake, which conceals a little plastic baby inside (to represent Jesus). While in Spain, visit The Royal Palace of Madrid, the Aqueduct of Segovia, or the Sagrada Familia.
