Folk Superstitions

Are you familiar with any of these sayings?

If you shiver someone is walking on your grave.

If scissors fall and stick up in the floor, it is a sign that someone is coming.

It is bad luck to plant gourd seed. You should just throw the seeds at random to come up.

You can't grow good gourds unless you cuss them.

The more you cry, the less you piss.  This is said to children that cry too much.

Never cross a funeral procession or count the followers or you will have bad luck.

Sneezing three times in succession is a sign of a stranger coming.

Stumbling on the sidewalk is a bad sign.  Stumbling when going up steps a good one.

To put up an umbrella while in the house will bring bad luck.

To rock an empty rocking chair is bad luck.
