Raymundo Dominguez, 33, sells balloons in on Jan. 5 Mexico City the day before Three Kings Day, which is considered the end of the Christmas season. The day commemorates the Christian belief that three wise men from distant lands traveled to worship and present gifts to infant Jesus. To celebrate, children tie letters with their gift wishes to the balloons, and send them up in the sky for the kings to read.
