Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh

These are the gifts that Gus' godparents gave him for Christmas (that I mentioned in my post about Three Kings' Day). There really is some myrrh and frankincense in the ornately decorated boxes. The wooden box contained three Almond Rocas to represent gold. Gus is planning on painting some little blocks of wood gold so that he can eat the Almond Roca. ;)

My kids were delighted that the boxes themselves were a little reminiscent of the chests in Merchant of Venice, in that the box containing gold is very plain.

These made a really lovely addition to our Three Kings' Day Procession.
