CRADLE CHARMS;
A child's disposition is supposed to be influenced by the day of week upon which it was born.
Thus a baby born on a Monday will grow up with a tendency to jealously.
The Tuesday,born are brave and candid.
Wednesday, hasty tempered,
Thursday, calm and placid,
Friday, determined and romantic.
Saturday, proud and rather quarrelsome.
Sunday, thrifty and will make money.

Never cut your hair, or your finger nails or your toe nails on Friday or Sundays or bad luck will follow. Never bring May into the house; it is very unlucky.
