V is for Visitors



V is one of the tricky letters - V is for folklore about Visitors!

If a piece of cutlery falls to the floor from your table, you will have a visitor before the meal is finished.

If you lift the damper off your stove and a flanker (spark) pops out and lands on the floor, its a sign of company.

When a group of people are visiting, the first one that the cat glares at will die soonest.

  8. I haven't heard these before, but they're interesting.

    I've also heard, I think, that if your nose is itching, you're going to have guests...I think that's how it goes. :)

  10. We have four cats and they all glare at me. They know I'm allergic and maybe it's not a glare, but a smirk...
