I've been doing a lot of research lately on old wives tales and superstitions. I find them fascinating. I've had experiences with one that has been freakily accurate. So, I wanted to find out more, learn others to put to the test. Of course, some are so far fetched, that I'd never be able to test them out, but there are a few that I've tried to see if they are for real.

The one that I've done many times involves holding a piece of string with a pin on the end over someone's wrist. You hold it over the wrist and watch the movement. It tells you how many and what sex of the children that person is supposed to have/has had. You have to have a steady hand to do it, but it's been amazingly accurate for me. Anyway, I've done this one quite a few times and as I said, it's been nearly 100% accurate.
Lately, my daughter has been looking for signs. She has her heart set on marrying a certain person. So, I've been searching to see if there is a way to determine who you are going to marry by using an old wives tale or superstition. There are several that I've found, but many of them are just too ridiculous to even try. But we've tried a few and they seemed to come up with the first letter of this boys name. So, who knows. She'd really freak out if we found more to test out and they pointed in his direction, too. LOL.
Anyway, I got to thinking about signs and if they are real. I really do believe in them, but you have to look out for them. They can be anywhere. And they can be so subtle, you can miss them easily. This is my opinion and I don't know if I'm right or wrong, but that's what I choose to believe.
So, what do you think? Are there really signs to point us in the right direction? Do you think it's possible to discover things about your future using old wives tales or superstitions? Let me know what you think.
P.S. If you have some old wives tales to share, I'd love to hear them. Leave me a comment and let me know. Have you tried any out? Have they come true?
P.S.S. Gracen, she wants you to dream about it so it will come true, LOL.
