Ghost Rider rides through a dark Arizona desert on Christmas Eve, 1974, only to come across... three wise men on camels. The wise men tell GR that they're three kings following a blazing star seeking the child of prophecy. Johnny Blaze (Ghost Rider) is a mite puzzled, and decides to investigate, leaving the men and their camels behind him.
In the Baxter Building, Ben is helping out Reed (Mr. Fantastic), in his lab, and griping about Reed's working even on Christmas Eve. Reed is fascinated by the new star. Ben heads downstairs, and join the FF's Christmas party, where pretty much the whole guest list above excepting Wyatt (but plus Alicia Masters and Annie Christopher, Namorita's roommate) is enjoying the holiday. They activate Reed's XMas surprise, and discover that his Christmas tree decorating pretty much outdoes the fourth of July, much to Ben's amusement.
Back in Arizona, Ghost Rider has made it to a middle eastern city, populated by American Indians in semitic clothing. We recognize (though GR doesn't) the innkeeper as Wyatt Wingfoot, and GR is driven away from the manger by a mysterious dark figure who creates a whirlwind out of thin air.
Meanwhile, Ben has gone back up to get Reed, who's figured out that something is up in Arizona. Reed wants to head out to investigate, but Ben forces him to go down and join his wife and son at the party, and heads out to investigate the mystery in Arizona himself. Arriving in Arizona, Ben sees a flare burning on a hill, and heads for it. The 'flare' is actually Ghost Rider, and after introductons, the two commandeer some camels and clothes and head for town...
