Did three wise men follow the star to find the newborn Jesus? I can't seem to find it in the Bible anywhere.

Much of the Christmas tradition surrounding the wise men and the Christmas star cannot be confirmed by the Bible. In the only Scriptural account, Matthew 2, there were an unnumbered amount of wise men bringing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the newborn King of the Jews as prophesied by the prophet Daniel. These wise men followed the star from the East to Jerusalem and on to Bethlehem Ephrath when the star reappeared. It is assumed that after the birth of Christ the Christmas star once again disappeared.
