PESHTIGO — In many American families, children look forward to a visit and gift from Santa on Christmas Day.

“In many Spanish-speaking countries, it is the visit from the Three Kings on the evening of Jan. 5 that excites them most,” said Peshtigo High School Spanish teacher Jackie Lemire. Lemire and co-advisor Cindy Birch taught their Spanish Club students about this tradition that coincides with celebrating Christmas in many Spanish-speaking countries and even Spanish-speaking American families.
