Old Wives Tales: “Winter”

by Marquette Turner Luxury Homes

in Old Wives Club, Old Wives Tales, Variety

Old Wives’ Tales are urban legends, throughout the world. And, regardless of how much truth they hold or how much superstition they suggest, they are fun to read nonetheless.

In this article I’m looking at “tales” on “winter”. Stay safe and well!

1. If the first calf born during winter is white, the winter will be a bad one.

2. To cure a cough, take a hair from the coughing person’s head, put it between two slices of buttered bread, feed it to a dog, and say “eat well you hound, may be sick and I be sound.”

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

4. Place a hand in front of your mouth when sneezing. Your soul may escape otherwise.

5. Having someone say “God bless you,” drives the devil away.

6. If you sneeze on a Monday, you sneeze for danger; Sneeze on a Tuesday, kiss a stranger; Sneeze on a Wednesday, sneeze for a letter; Sneeze of a Thursday, something better; Sneeze on a Friday, sneeze for sorrow; Sneeze on a Saturday, see your sweetheart tomorrow. Sneeze on a Sunday and the devil with have domination over you all week.
