The Three Wise Men from the East arrive in the Canary Islands immersed in the sixth wave of a pandemic that is reluctant to disappear. The smallest of the house are once again the most affected by the sanitary restrictions. They have already suffered the impact of the state of alarm, without school, without playgrounds, without walks. The successive waves have been opening and closing spaces for them, to reach a date as magical as January 6, and have to, once again, bear the weight of restrictions that, considering the level of infections, adults seem not having been for the work of respect. Even so, the different municipalities of the island have made an effort so that today, in one way or another, the boys and girls of Tenerife can see, even from afar and on a platform, a car or a minibus, Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar. Everyone calls for responsibility to use masks and maintain social distance.
In Santa Cruz, this year, with no curfew, the City Council has arranged one more royal procession, so that the children of the five districts will be able to enjoy their own unique parade. There will be no stops, no candy will be thrown, but at least they will go at a speed that will allow the little ones to see their favorite king. In addition, those from Santa Cruz will be geolocated so that mothers and fathers can calculate the waiting time for the royal entourage as they pass through a specific point in the city. A walk where there will be almost no coal, because this year the children have been extremely good and patient.
In La Laguna, the Kings will depart from the royal camp located in the La Constitución park, to multiply by five different routes, which will allow all the towns and neighborhoods of the lagoon municipality to be able, to a greater or lesser extent, to enjoy the procession. The City Council calculates that from four in the afternoon Their Majesties will pass through about 300 points.
In the north and south of Tenerife, its municipalities have also done their part so that the little ones can enjoy a little joy and excitement in their streets. Yesterday, in La Orotava, the now traditional giant roscón quickly sold out. The planned 1,000 servings flew by in the blink of an eye. Today will be the turn of Their Majesties of the East, who, thanks to their magic, will be deployed almost simultaneously through the different northern municipalities. Almost the same as they will do in the south of the island, where the Kings will enjoy the prevailing good weather in mostly convertibles.
Social networks, but also television and radio, will become today the best way to get closer to Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar, who will be the protagonists together with the little ones.
