Strip by: Sharruma

Caption: The Three Wise Men prepare to depart for Bethlehem
Delkus: According to the Star, The Son of God will be born in Bethlehem. In five days time.
Caption: Little Star of Nazareth, Newspaper.
Olivus: Seriously? Man, that's Christmas day, we'll never get rooms!
Ambrosus: It's okay, I called ahead and booked the last three rooms at the local inn.

The author writes:

I assume Ambrosus has his own copy of the newspaper and was already aware of the situation.

(In years to come the newspaper would later be mistaken for the Little Star of Bethlehem, but obviously the wise men were no where near Bethlehem when they bought it.)

I'm not sure what possessed me to think of this in the middle of June.
