* 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."

--> '''Quagmire''': Oh my god, it IS a f***ing plane!!
** Eventually, they make their way to Betlehem, presumably following the actual Star, where they find Joseph and an expecting Mary.
--> '''Joe''': We are three wise men! We came here following a star!
--> '''Joseph!Peter''': Those two statements contradict eachother.

* A joke: A teenaged girl and her mother are at the doctor's for some unexplained weight gain and mood swings. The mother virulently swears her daughter [[MyGirlIsNotASlut behaves in every way a respectable young lady should]], and thus cannot explain these symptoms. The doctor looks at them for a moment, then gets up and looks out the window.
--> What are you doing, doctor?
--> The last time this sort of thing happened, a star appeared in the daytime, and then three men on camels showed up with expensive gifts!

* SciFi short stories sometimes like this star for a TomatoSurprise. For instance, in ArthurCClarke's ''The Star'', a Jesuit astronomer is a member of the crew which finds the remains of a peaceful, near-utopian society on a planet that had a Class 5 ApocalypseHow when its sun went supernova. His faith is shaken when he realizes that supernova was the Star of Bethelehem.
