Part 5 .. Superstitions

Welcome to Flo's Business & Fun Blog

It finally stop snowing, now I'm happy :-) and it's my day off tomorrow. I have nothing plan but to take it easy, I've had guests since Christmas. Here's something interesting I ran into...

True Rainbows

The seven colors of the rainbow are violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.

There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow because this marvel of nature has no beginning nor does it have an end.

To see all the rainbow You must be in the right place .. in an airplane or on a mountain top.

There and then You would see more than just the top half of a rainbow. You would see a surprise... all the true rainbow... a complete circle!

It's Friday and here's part 5 of "General Superstitions" provided by Craftie Linda an Adland Friend. It's very interesting .. enjoy! Please take a moment to visit my coolest community on the web... if You like it join for FREE!

General Superstitions
by Craftie Linda

Don't step on a crack on a sidewalk or walkway.

A yawn is a sign that danger is near.

The number of Xs in the palm of your right hand is the number of children you will have.

Two people pull apart the dried breastbone of a chicken or turkey until it cracks and breaks, each one making a wish while doing so. The person who gets the long half of the wishbone will have his or her wish come true.

If you make a wish while throwing a coin into a well or fountain, the wish will come true.

A watermelon will grow in your stomach if you swallow a watermelon seed.

A bride's veil protects her from evil spirits who are jealous of happy people.

If a woman sees a robin flying overhead on Valentine's Day, it means she will marry a sailor. If she sees a sparrow, she will marry a poor man and be very happy. If she sees a goldfinch, she will marry a millionaire.

Dropping an umbrella on the floor means that there will be a murder in the house.

If you bite your tongue while eating, it is because you have recently told a lie.

All wishes on shooting stars come true.

A spider is a repellent against plague when worn around the neck in a walnut shell.

You sleep best with your head to the north and your feet to the south.

If you sing before seven, you will cry before eleven.

Salty soup is a sign that the cook is in love.

Rosemary planted by the doorstep will keep witches away.

If you leave a rocking chair rocking when empty, it invites evil spirits to come into your house to sit in the rocking chair.

A wish made upon seeing the first robin in spring will come true - but only if you complete the wish before the robin flies away.

A red ribbon should be placed on a child who has been sick to keep the illness from returning.

A rainbow in the Eastern sky, The morrow will be fine and dry. A rainbow in the West that gleams, Rain tomorrow falls in streams.

Have a great day and a fantastic weekend!
