      @bawnian-dexeus ya what sort of action did the 3 wisemen go to to get to the manger. I mean the original telling is quite vague in the Bible. This has a chance to be something very special or something completely awful.

        huh? not sure about this at all. first off - the Wise Men are not the main characters of that story - Jesus is. Second, this retelling makes me nervous. hate retellings/reimaginings... especially with a narrative like this one.
