The Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star, is a star in [[UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} Christian]] tradition that revealed the birth of Jesus to the magi (or "wise men") and later led them to Bethlehem. According to the Gospel of Matthew, [[TheThreeWiseMen the magi]] were men "from the east" who were inspired by the appearance of the star to travel to Jerusalem. There they met King Herod of Judea, and asked where the king of the Jews had been born. Herod then asked his advisers where a messiah could be born. They replied Bethlehem, a nearby village, and quoted a prophecy by Micah. While the magi were on their way to Bethlehem, the star appeared again. As they followed the star, it stopped this time above the place where Jesus was born. The magi found Jesus with his mother, paid him homage, worshipped him and gave gifts. They then returned to their "own country".

* Appears in ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian''. The magi come to the stable where Brian was born, rather than the one {{Jesus}} was born in (the one next to it.)

Added DiffLines:

* One Marvel Comic featuring Ghost Rider seemed to have this occurring in modern times, on Christmas Eve, no less, accompanied by several familiar scenes right out of the Bible. Turns out it was just the Miracle Man messing around with his powers.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/SpikeMilligan recollected being sent out on a hazardous night trek into the front lines in late December 1942. Arousing the ire of the SergeantRock who had demanded silent movement (their job was to repair a break in a phone line caused by German mortar fire), one of Milligan's buddies drew attention to a star-shell illuminating the night sky above them. Milligan quipped that this meant a child had been born in Bethlehem. Then two more star-shells lit up the night. Milligan digested this and added "She's had triplets. That wasn't in the script."
