Omens That Forbode Evil

Amongst fatal signs, the most fatal is to break a looking glass, for then it is certain that someone in the house will die before the year is out. And there is no mode of averting the evil fate.

It is very unlucky to meet a weasel coming towards you in the early morning, ad you should at once spit at him, for, if he spits at you first, a great danger will fall on you before the sun sets. Yet, you must never kill a weasel; it is fatal, and will bring sure destruction on yourself, for the whole family of the murdered weasel will take vengeance and cause something dreadful to happen to you within the year.

I heard the one that if a pig should run in front of you as you walk down a lane you should walk to a bar as fast as possible and hit your head on it 5 times and then drink one beer and you will have great luck.

When changing your residence, it is unlucky to bring a cat with you especially across a stream, and a red and white cat is particularly ominous and dangerous. If a black cat comes of her own accord to your house, keep her, she is a good spirit; but do not bring her, she must come freely, of her own good will.

If the first lamb of the season is born black, it foretells mourning garments for the family within the year.

It is unlucky to meet a magpie, a cat, or a lame woman when going a journey. Or for a cock to meet a person in the doorway and crow before him?then the journey should be put off.

If one magpie comes chattering to your door it is a sign of death; but if two prosperity will follow. For a magpie to come to the door and look at you is a sure death sign, and nothing can avert the doom.

A flight of rooks over an army betokens defeat; if over a house, or over people when driving or walking, death will follow.

It is very unlucky to ask a man on his way to fish where he is going. And many would turn back, knowing that it was an evil spell.

When a swarm of bees suddenly quits the hive it is a sign that death is hovering near the house. But the evil may be averted by the powerful prayers and exorcism of the priest.

A crowing hen, a whistling girl, and a black cat, are considered most unlucky. Beware of them in a house.

If a hen crows on the roost it is a sign that the fairies have struck it, and the head of the hen must be immediately cut off and flung on the ground, or one of the family will sure die before the year is out.

QUOTE (Richard Bercot @ Nov 15 2003, 09:27 PM)
Omens That Forbode Evil

It is unlucky to meet a cat, a dog, or a old woman, when going out first in the morning: but unlucky above all is to meet a woman with red hair the first thing in the morning when going on a journey, for her presence brings ill luck and certain evil.

Lord and Lady help me then, I'm red headed as I can be. Well, I promise you'll not meet me on the morning you go off on a journey, good sir! wink.gif

That or I'll wear a hat. laugh.gif biggrin.gif
