Three Wise Men?

Twelfth Night, 6th January. is traditionally associated by Christians with the visit of the Magi, or Wise Men, to the baby Jesus.

But did you know this probably occurred a couple of years later, and not 2 weeks after his birth when we celebrate it? What's more, nowhere in the Bible does it say there were three of these characters. Could have been two, could have been five!

My friend Andrew even goes so far as to speculate that they never existed at all! What do you think?
