The Animals' Christmas Eve


The Animals’ Christmas Eve

This is one of the best part of the holidays, putting up lights, especially solar powered LED lights.

It always makes me wonder what the animals think about the lights. And, maybe they look forward to a treat of some extra seed or grain, if they’re up and not hibernating.


This was made for the DECEMBER ART CHALLENGE hosted by SharpenedEdge. :iconsharpenededge:

The Animals’ Christmas Eve

“Why do you think they dress up the trees?” The Wolf wondered.

“Who knows?” The Marmot laughed. “They’re so funny.”



This is part of a series that started with the Four Seasons, Fae Fete, and Blue Christmas, going from Autumn to Winter, and putting up the lights for the holidays.

The animals must find it curious, with all the decorations and lights. Hopefully, the get a bit of a treat of something, for the holidays.

- The Animals Christmas Eve by Gale Wiersum


-God Bless Us, Everyone.

(In different Christmas plays and pageants I played Tiny Tim, a sheep, a sheepherder,  one of the Magi (Who asked for directions; so got there on time. The line was, "I got 'im a tie.")
And, for some reason, a monkey on Noah's Ark: typecasting, no doubt.
In one production, my friend, Sue, had to quickly change backstage, between Nephew Fred and Belle, Scrooge's long, lost love. It was funny.)
