R5J3 SUPERSTITIONS. -fy The liltb cottage Oriental rugs often miid; by iris v. ho are shortly to be married, in Turkey, Persia, on the Armenian plateau, and in Af ghanistan, carry with them all the poetry an;l mysticism of the Oriental girl's mind, as she is just buddinj 'jii'.o womanhood. She weaves into the rugs almost her very thoughts—so much is rug v,'caving a Part of the Orin'al life, and so little is it a purely cornmsr cial pursuit. Time is not counted of value in the East when rugs arc made. Consequently, Americans have found it impo3niblc to compete with the Orientals in the manufac ture of th:se practically everlasting products. In tome parts cf the Oriental-rug countries it is considered wrr.ng to have the rugs seen ;n the making by Christians.

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 13 March 1914

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS J It is surprising how many quaint customs and beliefs concerning New New Year's Day still survive ill out of-the-way places (says "The "Westmin ster Gazette"). One of the oldest cus toms, which originated in ancient Rome, is the giving' of presents. This custom. flourished at the English Court until the seventeenth century, and stil' exists in Scotland. A strange belief In some parts of the country is that no washing must be done on New Year'p Day for fear of washing some member of the family out of existence during the ensuing year. From Cornwall Corne ll superstitition which tells how to ensure a plentiful supply of money. On New Year's Eve a coin is placed outside upon the window-sill and must not be 1 taken in until tho New Year; money will then continue to come in all the I year. (It is not advisable to put your 1 coin 011 the sill of a ground-floor win dow, or money may go out instead of < coming in!) |
