Star of Bethlehem

All cultures in history considered the appearance of a new star as an omen. The Star of Bethlehem heralded the advent of Jesus Christ. The Gospel according to St. Mathew has it that the star showed the Three Wise Men from the East the way to Bethlehem so that they could bow before the Infant Jesus and bring him gifts. The star has remained an important symbol of Christmas up to the present day.
