* In one of ''{{Peanuts}}'''s many Christmas storylines, Sally is playing the part of an angel in a Nativity play.

* The word "Jehovah" doesn't appear in the Hebrew Bible. The name of God given by the burning bush to Moses was "YHWH" due to formal Hebrew's lack of vowels. In the Hebrew pronunciation guidebooks written later, YHWH was always annotated with the vowels for "adonaii", meaning "Lord", due to the Jewish ban on speaking the name of God. German translators read this, and not knowing the convention, fit those vowels into the consonants (and translated the Y and W into the Germanic J and V), making the compound word "Jehovah". The actual pronunciation was simply lost over time.
