Current Superstitions By Fanny Dickerson Bergen

Sinopsis

No matter how enlightened, chances are youve been raised around superstitious lore of one kind or another. Fanny Dickerson Bergen was one of the original researchers of North American oral traditions relating to such key life events and experiences as babyhood and childhood, marriage, wishes and dreams, luck, warts and cures, death omens and mortuary customs, and such truck, as Huck Finn would say. Youll be surprised at how many of these old saws youll know. Heres a quote from Chapter One, Babyhood: Mondays child is fair of face,Tuesdays child is full of grace,Wednesdays child is sour and sad,Thursdays child is merry and glad,Fridays child is loving and giving,Saturdays child must work for a living;But the child that is born on the Sabbath dayIs blithe and bonny, good and gay.Baldwinsville, N. Y. All of these readings are as short as 5 minutes and no longer than 15 minutes, with plenty of pithy one-liners in the form of proverbs, always given with the locale they came from in Canada or the United States (with clear influences in British tradition).
