Three Wise Men's Day by megawackymax Three Wise Men's Day by megawackymax
Today, January 6th, is Wise Men's Day in Argentina. It's a special celebration in which, according to legend, the Three Wise Men ride their camels through the night and deliver presents next to good children's shoes. Think of it as a "Second Christmas".

The funny thing is, we don't call them "Wise Men" but "The Three Magic Kings", and so the little comic above has an untranslatable joke that goes like this:


VICTOR: Look what the Three Magic Kings brought for me!

WILFREDA: Ohh, sure! The Kings can be Magical, but I can't be a Witch! Huh?


For those who celebrate it, Happy Three Magic King's day!

Around here, we just call it "Three King's day".

Its simpler.

I didn't choose the name.

Victor's smile doesn't seem at all diminished as Wilfreda points out his apparent hypocrisy. Cute job on the kids, and the toy does look pretty awesome too.

The toy is an homage to "Mafalda", an Argentine daily comic about a group of kids. You will see a lot of inspiration from Mafalda in Wilfreda. During one arc, one of the characters gets that same toy as Victor.
