We do not know the precise quantities, of course.

This is a bit of a side trail, but I find it interesting. The magi studied the heavens, they are referred to as astrologers by some. We think of astrology as being sinful, because it has been perverted. Here is another view of astrological signs and their importance. http://dreamsandmysteries.com/videos/the-mystery-of-signs-in-the-heavens/ Troy Brewer explains how the story of Jesus is told in the heavens once a year.

Here is a video of the shortened version of the podcast mentioned above by Jasen1 in video with a slide show.

'A reasonable explanation which places the birth of Christ at September 11, 3BC, which also happened to be the beginning of the Jewish new year in 3 B.C. (Rosh Ha-shanah, Tishri 1, the Day of the Trumpets, the Feast of Trumpets). Tishri 1 was also the day that many of the ancient kings and rulers of Judah reckoned as their inauguration day. Hmmm.

We are told that there was a Russian bandit who was preparing for a raid when someone mentioned that the day in question was a saint's day. Though an outlaw, he was unwilling to defile the holy day with nefarious work.

Of course, in the Orthodox as in the Roman calendar, just about EVERY day is some saint's celebration - some are dedicated to 20 or more. Moral, do not steal.

But similarly, about any day you care to name we can find symbolic and significant anniversaries and significances that, thinking of Christ's birth, will make us say Aha!
