Old wive's tales

Post by louli on Fri Jul 23, 2010 1:00 am

I've some old british wives' tales .. some of them are like the ours ... I know we should not believe it but just for fun ...

1- if you blow out all the candles on your birthday cake at the first puff ... means that you can make a wish and it will come true

2- If you dream of fish... it means someone you know is pregnant

3- if you ear starts to itch .. it means tha someone is talking about you

4- If your hand starts to itch ... it means you're going to come into money in the near future

5- If you break a mirror ... it means it will you bring seven years bad luck

6- If you sneeze, place a hand over your mouth.... to stop your soul escaping

7- if you knock 3 times on wood after mentionning good fortune ....means that evil spirits that hear you won't ruin it

8- put salt on the dropstep of a new house means to prevent any evil entering

9-If someone is sweeping the floor and sweeps over your feet means you 'll never get married

10- If a Black cat walks towards you means it brings good fortune

11- if 3 people are photographed together ... means the one in the middl e will die first

12- if you bite your tongue whi you are talking .. means you've been lying recently

13- Open all the windows when someone dies ... so that the soul can leave

14- keep a rabbit's foot in your pocket ... means to protect you from evil spirits


... enjoy .. that was for fun.
