Part 4 .. Superstitions

Welcome to Flo's Business & Fun Blog

The weekend is here and I'm looking forward to my day off tomorrow .. I have no special plans but to relax and enjoy it!

I have a visitor from Edmonton Alberta till next Tuesday so I'm hoping to do something different with my friend. I enjoyed the horse buggy ride... I'll mention it and hopefully my friend will be interested of seeing some country scenes and have a great day.

It's Friday today .. I'm sharing part 4 of "General Superstitions" provided by Craftie Linda an Adland Friend. It's interesting and some are very funny...

General Superstitions
by Craftie Linda

When making the bed, don't interrupt your work, or you will spend a restless night in it.

A swarm of bees settling on a roof is an omen that the house will burn down.

The sound of bells drives away demons because they're afraid of the loud noise

When a bell rings, a new angel has received his wings.

If you blow out all the candles on your birthday cake with the first puff you will get your wish.

The Blarney Stone is a stone set in the wall of the Blarney Castle tower in the Irish village of Blarney. Kissing the stone is supposed to bring the kisser the gift of persuasive eloquence (blarney.)

To protect yourself from witches, wear a blue bead.

Touch blue and your wish will come true.

Before slicing a new loaf of bread, make the sign of the cross on it.

A loaf of bread should never be turned upside down after a slice has been cut from it.

If you say good-bye to a friend on a bridge, you will never see each other again.

Do not lean a broom against a bed. The evil spirits in the broom will cast a spell on the bed.

If you sweep trash out the door after dark, it will bring a stranger to visit.

If someone is sweeping the floor and sweeps over your feet, you'll never get married.

Never take a broom along when you move. Throw it out and buy a new one.

To prevent an unwelcome guest from returning, sweep out the room they stayed in immediately.

If the first butterfly you see in the year is white, you will have good luck all year.

Three butterflies together mean good luck.

If a candle lighted as part of a ceremony blows out, it is a sign that evil spirits are nearby.

If the first calf born during the winter is white, the winter will be a bad one.

Keep cats away from babies because they "suck the breath" of the child.

A cat onboard a ship is considered to bring luck.

If you get a chill up your back or goose bumps, it means that someone is walking over your grave.

It is bad luck to light three cigarettes with the same match.

Evil spirits can't harm you when you stand inside a circle.

If a clock which has not been working suddenly chimes, there will be a death in the family.

Clover protects human beings and animals from the spell of magicians and the wiles of fairies, and brings good luck to those who keep it in the house.

It's bad luck to pick up a coin if it's tails side up. Good luck comes if it's heads up.

To drop a comb while you are combing your hair is a sign of a coming disappointment.

Cows lifting their tails is a sure sign that rain is coming.

Have a great day and a fantastic weekend!
