2.  If your shirt gets wet while you're washing dishes, you will marry a drunk.

5.  If you kill a robin redbreast, you will never have good luck.

6.  If a rooster comes to the thresh hold of your house and crows, expect visitors.

7.  If you meet a funeral party on the road, you must turn and walk with the party for at least four steps to ward off bad luck.

8.  If you trip and fall in a grave yard, you will most likely die by the end of the year.
