Christianity may have roots in Persian religion
From NorthWest Indiana TImes:
This Christmas season picture a peaceful, 2000-plus-year-old scene of the Zoroastrian priest Artaban standing on the balcony of his Persian home while gazing into a midnight blue sky. He views a bright star that was to herald the birth of the Messiah. He hastily sets off to join the other three Magi in a prearranged location to begin the journey to follow the star to Bethlehem.
