It is worth mentioning that the origin of tamales dates back to pre-Hispanic times, according to historical records of said food made from corn. At that time they were offered to the gods and consumed by priests and nobles, but later they were integrated into the diet of the common population, especially among the sectors with fewer resources that are today the ones that consume it the most.
While the tradition to consume tamales every February 2 was considered a special date for the Mexicas, as they celebrated the beginning of the planting season. For this reason, the populations of that time took to bless the corn that they later planted as a tribute to the God Tlaloc with the aim of gaining a good harvest.

Over time and with the evangelization of the towns, instead of blessing the corn, the people began to give thanks for the food and got used to eating tamales. For this reason, those who bring out the traditional child god of the Rosca de Reyes on January 6 also tend to share tamales and atole with others. The tamale or tamalli comes from Nahuatl and means wrapped.
