‘Tis the Season, Pt 9


The shepherds returned to their flocks.  Following his natal star, magi from the east sought the Christ child.  Their journey would take some time.

We usually portray them as arriving at the manger, but the Scripture reports that the family was living in a house.  Being limited by the figures, I’ll show them at the manger.


While we celebrate the arrival of the magi on January 6 (Epiphany or three kings day), they may have actually arrived on December 25.  (How great is that?)  That story is told in the video clip that follows.  A longer version can be found on Youtube.

Sylvia joins me in wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

Outside our windows the world is white and the snow continues to fall.  It feels very “Christmasy” to us.
