Letter: In brief

Sir: Anna Freeman (letter, 26 December) is right to deplore the continuing analysis of myths about the star of Bethlehem. It should be noted that the "wise men" who came "from the east" said they had seen the star "in the east" and had followed it. In that case they were heading not for Bethlehem, but Japan.
