We three kings of Orient are, bearing. . .what?

We were reading the story of the wise men last night. . .

Me: What did the wise men bring to Jesus?

Son: Myrrh!!

Son: Gold!!!

Me: What was the third thing they brought?

Son: (furrowing brow and thinking quite seriously) Chocolate?

Cute story. And chocolate would certainly get my vote! But the author of the carol didn't exactly get it right, either. If you'd like to learn 3 things he got wrong, and 3 things he got right, I invite you to check out my daily blog, Wordwise Hymns for today.

Thanks, Robert. I couldn't find your blog, though. Out of curiousity, how did you come across my blog?
