Superstitious??

I must admit I "borrowed" this subject from Empowering BBW's discusson board. Thanks guys and gals!!

Are you superstitious? Well, being from Eastern Kentucky means I was raised around superstitious people all my life...especially my Granny.

She had a "saying" for everything!!

Here are some of the favorites I remember:

For each pearl that a bride wears, her husband will give her cause for weeping.

Never sweep under one's feet...or they'll never get married.

Don't tell a bad dream before breakfast or it will come true.

Mirrors are supposed to be covered when a death occurrs because the person who sees his reflection would be the next to die.

When you move you are to buy a new broom,never carry the old one with you. If you do you are sweeping all your old troubles into your new home.

I have more...but don't have time to post them...will later....have a great day!

When I was pregnant, I killed a copperhead and my mother-in-law had a hissy fit and told me that the baby would have a birthmark of a snake. I thiought,OMG, this woman is nuts but I still checked the baby over when she was born...no birthmarks.
