Professor Victor Carmona Writes about the Significance of Three Kings' Day for the San Diego Union Tribune

Victor Carmona, Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, wrote an editorial piece on the historical significance of Three Kings' Day for the San Diego Union Tribune. In an excerpt from the piece, Carmona writes about the rosca de reyes tradition amongst Latinx families on the Epiphany: "In a tradition that remains faithful to the joy of the magi’s visit and the heartbreak that came at its end, we gather with friends and family — perhaps by Zoom or other online means during the pandemic — to cut a rosca, inside which a baker has hidden an infant-shaped figurine, to remember Jesus’ experience as a refugee."
