CAJUN HERITAGE


Some Superstitions from Acadia, as compiled by students from Crowley High, 1976

They say that switching sides when drinking from a cup can bring bad luck, and drinking coffee while
standing might cause you to lose all your money. Walking with one shoe on and one off may cause you
to lose everything you have. Sleeping on your back often causes nightmares. Boiled eggs or bananas
on a fishing trip brings bad luck. Stubbing your toe is considered bad luck, but if you pinch someone
right after – you can pass it along. Twirling a hat on your finger can cause headaches, and after a
haircut, never sweep the cuttings outside, `cause if birds use it in a nest, you will develop headaches.
Cutting a baby’s hair before it is six months old usually causes baldness before age 30. Never awaken
a sleeping person suddenly, or the frightened soul may not find its way back into the body.
