Loc: New England, USA
In the Email I get re animal safari there was a question about the Magpie Omens...can't find the post so here's a new one to answer in case nobody has the answer.
One for Sorrow
Two for Joy
Three to Marry
Four to Die
Five for Silver
Six for Gold
Seven or a secret never to be told.
Your High Priestess has to know these things! ;)
Even tho it applies to magpies only, I do not buy things with birds on them if there is just one or four birds shown.
But that's me.

hmm, gotta say I've never heard that version either, wow - always the girl/boy, silver/gold one quoted by eta where I have heard it chanted.

OK, that is a Scots interpretation.
Mine was learned from my Irish Grandmother who also had The Gift.
Ya know the old wheeze :
The Irish gave the Scots the bagpipes as a joke and the Scots haven't caught on yet!

At least they can make a fair rhyme :]
I hope your Granny's gift shop was prophitable.
