The Portuguese people burn Christmas log, which is locally called Cepo de Natal. This log is a piece of oak which burns throughout the day on Christmas, on the hearth. On the 5th of January, the young ones keep their shoes along the doorways and windowsills. They fill the shoes with straw and carrots, which will lure the horses to their house. According to them these horses belong to the Three Wise Men. Treats and gifts are left for the children in their respective shoes, which they get in the morning.
