Halloween Superstitions

 

 

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays.

I guess it’s because I have such fond memories of my mother on Halloween.  

She enjoyed making our costumes as well as

her homemade popcorn balls.  I can taste them now! 

I’ve finally figured out why mine aren’t as good…it was her special ingredient,  Uncle Lorn’s homemade

fresh sorghum molasses. 

Today I’m sharing a few photo’s from a friend's house as well as my own.

Also in today’s local newspaper there was a list of Halloween Superstitions that I would like to

share with you.

 

*  If a bat flies around a house three times, it’s a death omen.

*Knock on wood to keep bad luck away.

* A bat that enters a home may have been let in by a ghost.

(If that’s true we surely have ghosts in this house!)

*If a candle goes out on its own on Halloween, it is thought a ghost has come to call.

*A burning candle inside of a Jack-o-lantern on Halloween keeps evil spirits at bay.

*When a person lived a good life, flowers will grow on his grave, If he was evil

weeds will grow.

*Never slam a door; otherwise, you could hurt a ghost and risk haunting.

*Carry a lump of bread in your pocket when walking in the dark to serve as an offering to ghosts.

*Don’t look at your shadow in moonlight on Halloween night.  Otherwise, you will die within a short period of time.

*Seeing a spider on Halloween could be the spirit of a dead loved one who is watching you.

*If you hear footsteps behind you on Halloween, don’t look back because it could be the dead following.
