General Superstitions
by Craftie Linda

If you use the same pencil to take a test that you used for studying for the test, the pencil will remember the answers.

It is bad luck to see an owl in the sunlight.

Unless you were born in October, it's unlucky to wear opals.

A wish will come true if you make it while burning onions.

An onion cut in half and placed under the bed of a sick person will draw off fever and poisons.

If your nose itches, someone is coming to see you. If it's the right nostril, the visitor will be a female, left nostril, male.

A white moth inside the house or trying to enter the house means death.

A mirror should be covered during a thunderstorm because it attracts lightning.

It is unlucky to see your face in a mirror by candlelight.

It's bad luck to let milk boil over.

Clairvoyants use mandrake to increase their visions to enable them to see strange and wonderful things.

Mandrake is thought to have aphrodisiac and fertilizing properties.

Mandrake is a mysterious plant believed to have powers of preventing sterility in men and animals, causing barren women to bear children, and compelling love.

To dream of a lizard is a sign that you have a secret enemy.

Lettuce promotes child bearing if eaten by young women, and certain types of salad can bring on labor in pregnant women.

Lettuce is believed to have magical and healing properties, including the power to arouse love and counteract the effects of wine.

If you catch a falling leaf on the first day of autumn you will not catch a cold all winter.

A cricket in the house brings good luck.

Counting Crows: One's bad, Two's luck, Three's health, Four's wealth, Five's sickness, Six is death.

Pick a dandelion that has gone to seed. Take a deep breath and blow the seeds into the wind. Count the seeds that remain on the stem. That is the number of children you will have.

It's bad luck to leave a house through a different door than the one used to come into it.

If your right ear itches, someone is speaking well of you.

If your left ear itches, someone is speaking ill of you.

For good luck throughout the year, wear new clothes on Easter.

Pictures of an elephant bring luck, but only if they face a door.

If your right eye twitches there will soon be a birth in the family. If the left eye twitches there will soon be a death in the family.

To cure a sty, stand at a crossroads and recite “Sty, sty, leave my eye, take the next one coming by.

If an eyelash falls out, put it on the back of the hand, make a wish and throw it over your shoulder. If it flies off the hand the wish will be granted.

A fish should always be eaten from the head toward the tail.

Dream of fish: someone you know is pregnant.

Throw back the first fish you catch then you'll be lucky the whole day fishing.

If you count the number of fish you caught, you will catch no more that day.

It's bad luck to say the word pig while fishing at sea.

It brings bad luck for a flag to touch the ground.

First Flower of Spring: The day you find the first flower of the season can be used as an omen: Monday means good fortune, Tuesday means greatest attempts will be successful, Wednesday means marriage, Thursday means warning of small profits, Friday means wealth, Saturday means misfortune, Sunday means excellent luck for weeks.

If the bottom of your right foot itches, you are going to take a trip.

To drop a fork means a man is coming to visit.

It is bad luck to kill a ladybug.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
