Can you retell the story of the gifts of the Magi in a memorably magical way with just three pieces of rope?
The Effect: The performer excitedly shows the audience/congregation an early Christmas present. Inside to his/her surprise are three pieces of rope. Realising that this is a gift from a fellow magician the performer uses a rope trick to retell the story of the visit of the three Magi. At first the ropes grow to the same length and then become different lengths! Even more amazing is that everything can be examined! No gimmicks, no tricks. Just three ropes and an amazing story of child born to be king.
