Don't put away those manger scenes yet. The 12 days of Christmas, which began Dec. 25, don't officially conclude until the Feast of the Three Kings on Jan. 6, the traditional date for the wise men, or Magi, to arrive. Several Howard County Christian churches have traditional, and nontraditional, Epiphany customs. At the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ellicott City, the wise men arrived a little early. The weekend before Christmas, the church held a pageant. Members of the parish took turns playing the roles of prophets, shepherds and the three wise men. James Gartside of Jessup, who was among the Magi, said the wise men were familiar figures in Old Testament and other prophecies about a coming Messiah and connected those with astrological events.

Are there guidelines related to income that restrict who can contribute to a Roth IRA? If so, what are the cutoff points? - K.G., Chicago There are two factors to consider, your filing status and your modified adjusted gross income. Your filing status is usually documented on the first page of your most recent federal income tax return. If your circumstances haven't changed from year to year, then last year's filing status is likely to be the same as this year's. Your modified adjusted gross income is a harder nut to crack.

When Joseph J. Walsh teaches the History of Christmas course at Loyola College, students learn that many of their seasonal celebrations are not the ancient traditions most had assumed they were. But what's their biggest surprise? "The amount of work," says the Loyola classics and history professor. Which make sense. History of Christmas sounds like a course you tuck onto your schedule to have a break between quantum physics and Restoration comedy. But one conversation with Walsh lets you know that's not the case.

A faded Roman coin bearing images of a ram and a brilliant star has threatened to dash centuries of belief that a comet, supernova or other spectacular object lighted the sky at the time of Jesus' birth.New evidence suggests the Magi -- ancient wise men -- followed not a star but an astrological chart into Bethlehem, believing a regal horoscope had predicted the birth of a Messiah.Scientist Michael Molnar, whose theory was inspired by an ancient coin, has created a stir worldwide among astronomers whose sophisticated computer models and detailed studies of ancient tracts have never conclusively identified the biblical portent called the Star of Bethlehem.

Surprise! There's a musical based on two short stories by O. Henry, the master of the surprise ending. The Gifts of the Magi isn't a new show; it debuted off-Broadway in 1984 and had a couple of productions in Washington some years back. But it may be new to many area theatergoers, which makes its appearance at Olney Theatre Center somewhat of a welcome gift in itself. O. Henry's stories were modest affairs about ordinary folks, and in keeping with that, The Gifts of the Magi is a modest musical.

Think of Chris Wedge as a suburban superhero from his rival Pixar's The Incredibles. On a recent weekday morning, Wedge, 47, sounds like any other sleepy, harried family man in White Plains, N.Y., getting a slow start on the workday because of an overnight snowfall. He's trying to conduct a phone interview while his 8-year-old son fiddles with the fax machine. (He and his wife also have a 20-year-old daughter, off at college.) But Wedge has an alternate identity as one of the most successful filmmakers on the planet.

Boston -- On the seventh day before Christmas, the couple went out together to shop for presents. And came home with a bundle of revelations.Until then, mind you, the pair appeared to be a very model of compatibility. They shared everything from a passion for calamari to an impatience with Mario Cuomo.No predetermined sex roles skewed their partnership. Indeed, they were capable of sharing a kitchen, a checkbook and a tennis court without contemplating spouseicide. Who would have guessed that a gender gap of massive proportions would come unwrapped over gifts?

Surrounded by 100 children tearing into presents, Esperanza Cardenas, 6, sat primly yesterday on a metal chair, her arms clutching a large box wrapped in red foil. She shook the box occasionally, stuck her small hands beneath the foil and waited. At the Education-Based Latino Outreach center in Fells Point yesterday, the staff abandoned the regular Saturday morning schedule and indulged in holiday fun. They observed the Feast of Three Kings with gifts to the children, who spend hours in mentor programs.
