My mum is very superstitious. She never buys any clothes in green as she considers it an unlucky colour to wear. . . .
That's supposed tae be because the Fairies tradtionally wore green, an ye might annoy them if ye stole their colour, Heather.
If ye meet a nun in the street always gie her a coupla bob - ma Ma wis Catholic right enough. Don't turn away "gipsy" pedlars frae the door withoot buyin somethin aff them - even if it's overpriced trash an ye're almost skint. Don't put shoes on the table, as someone already said, but ma Ma's reason wis that "ye wid be on it soon enough". I.E, broon breid, as the body used tae lie overnight in the hoose.
