It is said that on the night of January 16-17, animals can speak. In old Bari there was a drunkard who didn’t believe it. So that night he made fun of his cat. “Cat, do you want a bean?” and the cat didn’t answer … “Cat, do you want the bean?” and the cat shut up … Midnight passed and the old man repeated the question: “Cat do you want the bean?” and the screaming cat replied: “And how should I chew it if I don’t have teeth?”. Such was the fear that the old man was struck and died.
