Do you think the animals talk Christmas Eve???
"Do you ever get up at Midnight on Christmas Eve to see if animals can actually talk to you and each other?
I know that many times I have gone out to my barn to see the animals on Christmas Eve. First of all, like many, I was curious as to whether they would talk or not. But besides that, it is such a peaceful thing to do and the animals are always glad to see you. I have to say they never actually spoke to me in human language but they always speak to me in their own language.
The donkeys do Heehaw at me to tell me they are very hungry. The cats run around wildly telling me to hurry up. The dogs just want to play and they tell me that by wagging their tails, and pushing me with their noses. The goats just give that look like where is the food. All animals have special ways to tell you things, just not in the human language.
So on Christmas Eve, it is a special experience to go out and see the animals. They are always glad to get a little extra snack and after all it is Christmas. And all you animals, don?t forget to give your staff, or Mommas and Dads some special little attention on Christmas Eve, then we will know that you are talking.
In the barn on Christmas Eve,
After all the people leave,
The animals, in voices low,
Remember Christmas long ago . . .
Yes! They DO talk, maybe not so much using words, but they sure do let us know what they want and how they’re feeling! And if you keep very quiet and look into their eyes, they will tell you amazing stories.
I just moved to a new place about 10 minutes from the downtown core and I have daily visits from VERY friendly local cats. (they’re tagged and vaccinated)
They do talk and communicate in their own way. Some of them just run right into my apartment and scope out the place! I miss having a cat of my own.
Funny, I heard a story somewhere that on Christmas Eve, humans can talk Cat. But so far, that has never happened at my house.
Great post. I’ve been talking to animals for years. They do seem to talk back in their own animal way. Lately the animals I talk to are the wild ones, but all of them like to communicate.
I totally agree! Animals speak, if your heart is open to listen.
So you don’t have Mr. Ed in your barn? Just kidding. Our dog talks to us. I swear she does. We understand her too. It’s dog talk, but we do communicate.
Have a terrific day. :)
Woof! Just want to wish you and your family Happy Holidays. I just posted my last post for the year. We are going on a long Holiday break. Lots of Golden Holiday Woofs, Sugar
They doooooooooo talk to each other Marg.. i’ve seen them talk.. :) looking at animals any other day… is still a peaceful encounter.
Have a Merry Berry Christmas and A Happy New Year with your staff ya! All the best to you.
Awww too cute Marg. How are all the boys and girls doing today? Keeping you busy I am sure :-)
How nice! Special on Christmas eve wondering if the animals could actually speck human.
So they do ’speak’ to each other and to you; just not in the way we would expect them to. And we do have to listen with our hearts to understand them. :)
“The goats just give that look like where is the food”
I know that look! It’s the look Dad gave my Mom every day when he got home from work! lol!!
My brother and I tried to perfect that look too, but it didn’t seem to have quite the same effect as Dad’s did…. ;)
Of course, animals talk on Christmas Eve! They talk all the time! Why would they stop then? ;)
The animals will talk. We just have to know how to listen!
I can imagine how special it is to spend time with the animals on Christmas eve. That’s a lovely poem.
They probably feel the spirit of the season specially seeing humans doing something happy and entertaining specially for their pets. My buddy here on his third time for Christmas could talk too, because he knows he’s gonna get those yummy meal by midnight and will be able to open his presents too! I’m expecting a super waggy him on that evening.
I ever get up at Midnight on Christmas Eve to see if animals can actually talk to Me and each other.
