How Many?

Congratulations to Sharonscraps for winning yesterday's trivia contest and to

for winning the random drawing.  I can't wait to hear from the two of you lovely ladies at ijr41ug @ or iscrapdesigns @ (take out the spaces, please).  Make sure you let me know what file you'd like and I'll send it out to you asap.

Now for a bit of added trivia from my college days.  Did you know that on non-standardized tests the statistics reveal the answer to multiple choice questions is "B?"  That's true.  It does not work for standardized tests like the SAT, ACT, Iowa, FCAT, etc. Yet, for tests prepared by teachers and some textbook publishers, if you aren't certain, guess "B."

Here's today's trivia question and, yes, I must admit that it is a tricky one:

According to the Bible, how many magi visited Jesus after his birth?

The first person who guesses correctly will win their choice of a free file and everyone who comments here will also be entered into a random drawing for another free file.

Don't forget to visit my friends Chris and Jan for more fun.  Oh, and make sure you come back here tomorrow too when it'll be my turn to host a free gift for you.

Until next time, Happy Creative Time!

The Bible says the Magi visited Baby Jesus but no numbers of how many

The bible does not mention a specific number. It just refers to the Magi's from the East. It is assumed to be three because of the three gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

The Bible passage of "The Christmas Story" does not state the number of Magi who came from the east. There were three GIFTS given but the number of Magi seems unimportant.

Love your trivia questions, Ileana. Interesting way to keep the fun of the Countdown going.

Nobody knows-except God of course!

no number mentioned but three gifts... I am sure that God knows though :)

Best Guess?
Psalms 72:10,11
10.The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

11. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

It doesn't specifically say, but we assume 3.
