Advent Day 6

And behind part of the big red present is ...



Three wise men following a star! Note that the star has five points - I remember my mum (who was also my teacher for a couple of years) teaching me how to draw these without taking my pencil off the paper, though one point of mine always ended up a bit bigger than the others (oo-er!). For more star-drawing fun, watch this:

Of course, the gospels make no reference to the number of wise men - it's just been assumed from the number of gifts that there were three. [Insert "what the heck is myrrh?" stuff here.]
