Sweep under a girl's feet and she will never get married.

If your right hand itches, you are going to shake hands with a stranger.

If the bottom of your feet itches, you are going to walk on strange ground.

Dropping a comb while combing your hair is a sign of a coming disappointment.

Pick a dandelion that has gone to seed. Take a deep breath and blow the seeds into the wind. Count the seeds left on the stem and that will tell the number of children you will have.

It is bad luck to leave a house through a different door than the one used to come into the house.

If you dream of death, it is a sign of birth. If you dream of birth, it is a sign of death.

Dream of running and it is a sign of a big change in your life.

For good luck throughout the year, wear new clothes on Easter.

If your right eye twitches, there will soon be a birth in the family.

If your left eye twitches, there will be a death in the family.

A cricket in the house brings good luck.

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

Three butterflies together mean good luck.

Evil spirits can not harm you if you stand inside a circle.

If a clock has not been working and suddenly chimes, there will be death.

If an owl comes to your house, someone who lives there is going to die.

If you walk under a horseshoe, you will have good luck.

Carrying an acorn will bring you good luck.

To protect yourself from witches, wear a blue bead.

If you say good-by to someone on a bridge, you will never see each other again.

Keep cats away from babies because they will "suck the breath" of the baby.

To drop a fork means a man is coming to visit.
