Old Fashion Superstitions

I thought it would be interesting to share some old fashion superstitions with you.... I was on a site reading some of these today. How fun...

* To prevent a unwelcome guest from returning... sweep out the room they stayed in immediately after they leave.....

*Pulling out a grey hair only will mean 10 will come in it's place...

*A wish made upon the first robin you see in the spring will come true if you get the wish in before the robin flies.

* Knock three times on wood after mentioning good fortune... so evil won't ruin it.

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

*If a young girl catches a ladybug and then releases it... the direction the ladybug flies is the direction her future husband will come from.

*A mirror should be covered during a storm because it attracts lightening.

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

* Question...OK you remember the salt over the shoulder thing??? Exactly who gets to clean that up????

These are so funny Marietta... I love the one about making a wish on the Robin before he flys.

I also wanted to tell you that you should get your package sometime this week. I have had such a busy week and was super late in getting it out to you. Thanks again for joining and hope you love everything.
