A national work holiday in Poland, January 6th is marked by Three Kings Day processions in hundreds of cities across the country. The parade honours the three wise men - Kaspar, Melchior and Balthazar - who visited Jesus at his birth, with costumed characters passing out candy, plenty of carolling, and children dressed in colours signifying Asia, Africa and Europe (the respective homelands of the wise men). In the capital, the 2018 procession starts at 12:00 with the Angelus prayer near Sigismund’s Column on Plac Zamkowy, before winding its way through the Old Town to the live nativity scene on Plac Piłsudskiego.
