Francisco Mejia, owner of Francsco's Bakery, takes a tray of Rosca de Reyes out of the oven Wednesday at the bakery in Kennewick. The traditional Mexican "bread of kings" is eaten by families on January 6th to celebrate the arrival of three wise men at the site of Jesus' birth. Mejia, who has been a baker for 25 years, estimates his shop made 150 loafs for the holiday this year. "The most important thing about this tradition is that it brings families together," he said. Customarily whomever finds the baby Jesus toy has to cook dinner for the entire family on February 2nd.
