How many of you know older folk who have superstitions? My grandma has all sorts of old superstitions that she got from her mom. She follows the 12 signs of the Zodiac; just the other day she was telling my grandpa, "Now would be a good time to have you tooth pulled because the sign's in the head". The other day, my grandpa accidentally called me by my cousin's name, then said, "Jesse must be thinking about me." My great grandma actually believed many of them. I'm told she said Whippoorwills are bad luck, and, upon hearing one, she would tie a knot in the bed sheet to choke it. Also, if you dreamed about a wedding, it meant someone was going to die. I can't remember any other ones at the moment, but she was full of old sayings and superstitions. My great grandpa, I'm told, would turn his hat 45 degrees when a rabbit crossed the road in front of him, then turn it back when another one did. Not sure if that was a superstition, or just one of his things he did. This sort of thing is fascinating to me, although I don't believe any of them. I'm sure many of them have interesting stories behind them. Anyone else have any to add?
