In the Heavens I sided with the British Empire during WWII.
The Magi were Zoroastrian Priests, and they anticipated the birth of Jesus Christ. The Magi viewed a comet going from the east of then Persia to the west, so they went west with three gifts. At first they went to the Arabs and the Arabs told them that their gifts were in Arabic and it was code for where the Lord and Savior was born. The gifts were...الذهب واللبان والمر, the Magi deciphered the code to the gifts, one was Ramallah, one was Nablus, and one was Bethlehem. They went to to Bethlehem.
My three uncles have Zoroastrian and Mithraism birthdays.
Mithraism: Most important date is December 25th. The early Christians, somewhere around 200 A.D. changed the date of Jesus Christ's birthday to December 25th. I was born on August 19th, page 367 of Albert Pike's book: Morals and Dogma, a Celtic and Druid summer solstice.
