The few times we celebrated Los Tres Reyes in Puerto Rico, we joined our cousins and climbed uphill from where we lived to collect yerba santa maría—or as it's known in English, costmary—to leave in shoeboxes under the bed for the camels when the Three Kings visit.​​​​​​​
Just don't be an afrentao about and hog it all.
Loose English translation of a very Boricua phrase: "That's what you get, you hog!"
Book: Sow What You Reap by Baltasar, Gaspar and Melchor // Packets: Costmary Herb (Hierba de Santa María) Seeds
