Beef sale this Friday!
No superstitions held here. I learned quickly that most superstitions are tales by mothers to get your kids to behave and be healthy.
- “shoes on the table will bring bad luck”
Yes, it is also very dirty to have shoes on the table. Please, dear, don’t do that.
- “breaking a mirror will bring seven years bad luck”
And, my love, you will not clean up …. so I will have to. I’ve cleaned up enough today. So don’t break the mirror. Can you post on facebook instead?
- “open an umbrella in the house is bad luck”
Please use the umbrella when it is raining. If it is not raining, you are playing with it and therefore will break it and I need to buy a new umbrella. I don’t have the budget for this, thank you.
- “garlic protects from evil”
Garlic also helps you keep away from cold and flu. Cold and flu are evil. We use it liberally with mince and the rest during these cold months.
- “blowing out all the candles in one breath will bring you good luck”
Blow them out! It means your lungs are healthy and I’m happy.
- “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”
Eating seasonally, apples seem to do the trick when the colds set in.
- “A sailor wearing an earring cannot drown”
I should also add that, making a meatball in the month of December brings good luck!
