    It seems that I am always the bearer of bad tidings, but I think it is important to point out that Spanish children were crying their eyes out this year, because their shoes were empty on January 6!

    You see, the Magi Balthasar was arrested at a Immigration Checkpoint in the Leganes neighborhood of Madrid, so no toys were delivered. You may have noticed in the Madrid Parade last night, a “Blackface” imposter was used (seriously). This is because the real Balthasar is awaiting his deportation order at the Foreigner Detainment Center in Aluche. You can read the story in English (and find a link to the original story in Spanish) here…

    Richard, good tip. The Three Kings always seem to know how to get to the children, no matter what.
