Pishogues - Piséoga
Not to put down the dire May morning until twelve o'clock
Never leave butter out of the house without shaking a grain of salt on it.
Never carry out clothes to dry or bring them in after dark.
Never bring in a branch of an elder tree.
Never put shoes on a table
Never change your residence on a Monday
Tis unlucky to meet a foxy woman first going in a journey
Never visit a sick person coming from a wake.
