December 22, 2006------

With the holiday season now upon us, I, Sir_Lancegalawain, take it upon myself to present to this online community a most beautiful story, one that I will always hold as absolute truth.

However, not considering myself worthy to tell such a tale myself, I will depend heavily upon the King James Version of the Bible, chiefly upon the gospel of Luke, but with some excerpts from Mark, which gives an account of the Wise Men, who, although they were not present on the very night of Christ's birth, are traditionally included in the story--I will trust the wisdom of our ancestors in this matter and give them recognition, in spite of my own inclinations to do otherwise.
