In almost every culture, the birth of a child is marked with gifts and special ceremonies. Things were no different when the baby Jesus was born. The Magi came into the house where the baby lay. They fell down and they worshipped him, and presented their gifts to him, gold, frankincense and myrrh. The Magi presented the baby with the very best gifts they could find, because this was no ordinary child. This was a special child, who would grow up to be the Savior of the world.
