Some children may not know this part of the Christmas story as well as the other parts. The story never changes, but it seems the world tries to reinvent what Christmas is all about. I've said this before, but it's worth mentioning again. When instructing young children, repetition is a positive thing. Everything is so new at this age that it is helpful to repeat important messages multiple times. This is the third lesson on the Christmas story, the last lesson will cover the Nativity. The message of the wise men is an important one. The wise men, traveling from the East, came to give worship and give royal gifts.
It would be a good idea to mention the fact that the Bible doesn't mention the number of wise men there are. It seems that "we" have decided there are three probably for the purpose of pageants, or the number of gifts mentioned that were brought to Jesus.

During a conversation between the two men, Radiohead 's " Life in a Glasshouse " plays in the background. For the Bexhill scenes during the film's second half, the director makes use of silence and cacophonous sound effects such as the firing of automatic weapons and loudspeakers directing the movement of "fugees" illegal immigrants. A few times during the film, a loud, ringing tone evocative of tinnitus is heard. This sound generally coincides with the death of a major character Julian, Jasper and is referred to by Julian herself, who describes the tones as the last time you'll ever hear that frequency.
In this way, then, the loss of the tones is symbolic of the loss of the characters.
