    In Spanish-speaking countries, Christmas Eve is celebrated rather than Christmas Day. Dinner is eaten before Midnight Mass known as misa del gallo. In Latin America, where many countries do not celebrate the día de Reyes Reyes Magos, Christmas gifts are given on Christmas Eve. This custom is spreading in Spain, although the día de Reyes is celebrated there.
