in reply to How many stories does it take before you've heard them all?

Consider that almost everyone has a different version of the xmas story. Many of us will have had a Santa until we're ten and wise to it.

My version has the three magi in the stars, pointing somewhere when Orion, the one and only "hero" of this story, sets during the winter solstice. They also point to Aldebaran, leading the trek over the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere, with Sirius, the Dog Star, trailing behind. It seems ludicrous to me that stars would be stationary in an east-west way, as if in geosynchronous orbit.
