THE PIC:

This picture was taken in the Ram's Den at Shepherd University.

Some Superstitions:

 

Itching or Tingling

 

When a person is itching or tingling, it is supposed to foretell a future event. The following are some common omens:

Right Ear: someone is speaking well of you, or your mother is thinking of you.

Left Ear: someone is maligning you, or your lover is thinking of you

Right Eye: a pleasant surprise is coming

Left Eye: a disappointment is coming

Right Palm: money is coming to you

Left Palm: you will have to pay money

Feet: if the under-part of the foot itches, you will soon tread on strange ground

Knee: you will kneel in a strange place

Nose: means you will be kissed, cursed, or vexed, or shake hands with a fool

 

Ladders

 

It is unlucky to walk under a ladder. If a person must walk underneath a ladder they should do one of the following:

Cross the fingers until a dog is seen.

Spit three times through the rungs or over the left shoulder

Spit on the shoe and do not look back until the spit has dried

Be silent until a four legged animal is seen

 

Human Moles

 

Moles are intended to tell the future depending on where the mole is located. Often, moles on the right side of the body are fortunate and the ones on the left side are unfortunate.

Chin: a sign of riches

Front of the throat: you will be lucky

Back of neck: likely to end on the gallows

Nose: will travel a lot

Lip: hearty eater or fluent talker

Stomach: shows great strength

Thigh: shows poverty and sorrow

Wrist: a lively mind

           

Salt

 

It was once believed that a prayer said near salt would be answered. Also, if parents brought a plateful of salt to the babyís baptism, it was thought that the child would certainly go to heaven. It was even said that when people moved into a new house they should take in a box of coal and a plate of salt before anything else to be prosperous. It is considered very unlucky to borrow salt and even more unlucky to return it. It a person spill salt it should not be cleaned up until the person throws salt over his back three times to avoid misfortune.
