ATS Euro #14 Show Refill

When discussing about superstition, we came across the magpie.

Magpie Superstitions

There is an age old rhyme regarding magpie superstitions, brought to the fore in the 1970’s, by the children’s programme named after the birds, which implies that if you see these birds in numbers you will have varying degrees of fortune. The magpie superstitions rhyme goes: "One for sorrow, Two for joy, Three for a girl, Four for a boy, Five for silver, Six for gold, Seven for a secret never to be told. " Never been quite sure what to expect if I ever saw eight or more!

The majority of magpie superstitions however, revolve around the lone magpie. There are some curious customs associated with this. It is the most common of the magpie superstitions, and throughout the British Isles it is believed that it is unlucky to look upon a lone magpie and there are some interesting regional beliefs about what you should do to ward off any bad luck. For example: In Scotland and Northern Ireland one should salute the lone magpie; whereas in some parts of England one should wave or doff your hat! Magpie superstitions in Yorkshire suggests that the bird is associated with witchcraft and therefore an ill omen - one should make a sign of a cross or take off your hat in respect to ward off any evil. Another from remote parts of the White Rose County, suggests that an individual should imitate the lone magpie's missing partner - and loudly; although I‘m not sure I can recall what noise one makes! Apparently the magpie has significance overseas as well - in Korea, one of the more popular magpie superstitions, has folk believing that the magpie is a bird of inspirational instinct, which can foretell people that they will have visitors or house guests in the near future.


why saluting a lone magpie?

Many people believed that because birds could fly so high, they regularly flew in and out of heaven and were therefore closely connected to god. This belief formed the basis of literally hundreds of bird-related superstitions in the UK, some of which are still followed even today.

Many people believed that the Magpie was a Satan in disguise and that he was visiting your area to cause mischief. If you say "Good Morning Mr Magpie" you are letting Satan know that you have seen him sneaking around and so he will leave you alone.
If you see a magpie you should take off your hat or make a cross with your fingers to ward off the evil spirits.


British Isles

* In Britain and Ireland, there are a number of superstitions regarding magpies

* A single magpie is associated with bad luck (see rhymes below)
* One should make sure to greet magpies when they are encountered in order to either allay bad luck or encourage good luck as related to the number of birds and therefore their place in the Magpie poem. Common greetings include "Hello Mr Magpie" "How is your wife/where is your wife?", "Good Morning/Evening Sir" and other marks of respect.
* Upon seeing a lone magpie one should repeat the words "I defy thee" seven times.
* On seeing a lone magpie one should pinch the person they are walking with, if they are alone they are to pinch themselves. The custom in Devon is to spit three times to avert ill luck.
* If a lone Magpie is seen, one should salute it to show you respect it. This formality can be forgone if the Magpie looks directly in your eyes, which shows it respects you.

* In the 19th century book, A Guide to the Scientific Knowledge of Things Familiar, a proverb concerning magpies is recited: "A single magpie in spring, foul weather will bring". The book further explains that this superstition arises from the habits of pairs of magpies to forage together only when the weather is fine.
* An old English folk tale states that when Jesus was crucified on the cross, all of the world's birds wept and sang to comfort him in his agony. The only exception was the magpie, and for this, it is forever cursed.
* In Scotland, a Magpie near the window of the house foretells death.
* In Scottish folklore, in a story possibly related to the above, magpies were long reviled for allegedly carrying a drop of Satan's blood under their tongues.
