Christmas Thoughts

"On Christmas Eve all animals can speak." However, it is bad luck to test this superstition.

"The child born on Christmas Day will have a special fortune." My Aunt Marion was born on Christmas, 1908. She was special. Also, 25th December 1642, Sir Isaac Newton was born. He found white light could be split into the colors of the Rainbow.

Wearing new shoes on Christmas Day will bring bad luck.

Good luck will come to the home where a fire is kept burning throughout the Christmas season.

If a girl raps at the hen house door on Christmas Eve and a rooster crows, she will marry within the year.

A mild December precedes a cold snap later in the winter.

A green December fills the graveyard

A clear star-filled sky on Christmas Eve will bring good crops in the summer.

If sun shines through the apple trees upon a Christmas Day, when autumn comes they will a load of fruit display.

Snow on Christmas means Easter will be green.
A green Christmas; a white Easter.

If Christmas day be bright and clear  there will be two winters in the year.

The nearer the New Moon to Christmas Day, the harder the Winter.
