Wednesday Wives Tales

I haven't done an old wives tale post in a while, so I thought I would share these with you:

1. A bed changed on Friday will bring bad dreams.

2. Throw back the first fish you catch, and you will be lucky the entire day of fishing!

3. Stabbing your knitting needles through a ball of yarn will bring bad luck to whoever wears the garment you knit with the yarn.

4. If you dream about a lizard, it means you have a secret enemy.

5. Dropping an umbrella on the floor means there will be a murder in the house.

I've never heard any of these. Do you know these or any similar old wives tales?


  1. Oh my, I am glad I don't believe in all old wive's tales. I don't think I have heard of these before.

  2. I've never heard these before either. I have heard that if you open an umbrella in the house, it's bad luck. Also, if you dream about a snake, you have an enemy. And I've dreamed about snakes a LOT! ha ha
