Bread Superstitions

I found these and thought I’d share.  My favourite is the first one.

  • Who ever eats the last piece of bread has to kiss the cook
  • It is bad luck to turn a loaf of bread upside down or cut an unbaked loaf
  • If you burn bread it means your sweetheart is angry with you
  • To prevent ghosts from calling, leave bread and coffee under a house
  • Eating bread baked by a woman whose maiden name is the same as her married name is a cure for many illnesses
  • If all the bread is eaten, the next day will be good
  • If you put a piece of bread in a baby's cradle, it will keep away disease
  • Murphy's Law dictates that buttered bread will always land buttered-side down
  • Cutting bread in an uneven manner is a sign that you have been telling lies
  • When a couple is walking down the street holding hands and an obstacle comes between them, say "bread and butter" to keep the union until the hands meet again
  • A loaf of bread should never be turned upside down after a slice has been cut from it
