Climbing fish and hairy frogs

Lovely thought about how different languages use different phrases for the most unlikely events 
So we say Pigs might fly
In Israel it is When hairs grow on the palm of my hand
In France When chickens have teeth
In Finland When cows fly
In Hungary When the snowflakes are red
In Turkey When fish climb trees
In Spain When frogs grow hair
In China When the sun rises in the west

So no matter where you go there is an idiom for the unlilkely.
Today we have a confirmed date when our family will be together - breakfast on 4 Jan.  no pigs with wings/frogs with hair/climbing fish
