MADRID-Children hoping for that present they have always wanted can send their wishes through the post to the Three Wise Men.
In Spain, the Three Wise Men traditionally bring children their presents on 6 January or Epiphany.
It being the age of the Internet, children can also send off their present list by viewing the Post Office website at www.correos.es.
From today until 30 December, special Christmas cards will be available from post offices across Spain.
The cards will carry the images of the Three Wise Men and children can write their 'wish list' and send it off.
There will also be 74 special post boxes in offices in 52 cities and towns across the country.
The website will feature a picture of special cards of Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar.
The special post boxes are in the main post offices in Elche, Gijón, Ibiza, Badalona, Hospitalet de Llobregat, Terrassa, Jerez de la Frontera, Santiago de Compostela, Ferrol, Alcalá de Henares, Leganés, Móstoles, Cartagena, Vigo, Reus, Sabadell, Fuenlabrada, Mahón, Linares, Mérida and Talavera de la Reina.
