Javea warns of plans to suspend the tour of the Three Kings on the 5th January due to infections despite the fact that the children would only be able to see them from balconies.
- The city council warns that “health security is a priority” and that its celebration will depend on the “moment of the pandemic” in a municipality where the virus is on the rise.
- Thus, the team of Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar has decided to install real mailboxes in different parts of the municipality so that the little ones can deposit their letters in a staggered way and without crowds.
- From Saturday, December 26 to Sunday, January 3, they will be available at the Plaza de la Iglesia, Placeta del Convent, Parroquia del Puerto and at Paseo Tenista David Ferrer (in front of the La Fontana restaurant). There the emissaries will collect them and send them to the Magi of the East so that they can be promptly read.
As for the visit on the 5th January – they will wait at the last minute to decide if it can be maintained. As it is proposed, it will be a very simple act in which the kings will try to pass through most of the streets of the three urban centres of Javea so that the boys and girls can greet them without leaving home. However, health security is now the absolute priority and “the celebration of this journey will be conditioned to the health moment we are experiencing.”
What their Majesties have made clear is that their home delivery operation continues, adapted to the Covid but “with the same magic as always.”
