Let The Good Times Roll
In European countries, the coming of the Wisemen bearing gifts to the Christ Child is celebrated twelve days after Christmas. The celebration, called Epiphany, Little Christmas, or the Twelfth Night, is a time of exchanging gifts and feasting.
All over the world, people gather for festive twelfth-night celebrations. One of the most popular customs is still the baking of a special cake in honor of the three kings…”A King’s Cake.” The Europeans hide a bean inside their cake, and the person receiving the bean must portray one of the kings. Latin-American people put a small figure inside the cake representing the Christ Child. It is said that a year of good fortune awaits the lucky person who gets the figure.
Louisianans like the idea of perpetuating the celebration by having the person who received the baby continue the festivities with another party and another King Cake. Starting the twelfth day after Christmas, King Cake parties continue until Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, which marks the last day before Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday. King cakes were originally a simple ring of dough with a little decoration. The New Orleans style King Cake is brightly decorated with Mardi Gras colored sugars: Green-Faith, Purple-Justice, Gold-Power. Thousands of King Cakes are consumed at parties every year in the Crescent City making the King Cake another “Fine Louisiana Tradition.”
