You should not look at an animal with one eye shut, if you do the animal will be taken by the fairies. When a person is admiring anything especially an animal, he should say “God bless it” or if he does not the owner should say it. If two people wash their hands in the same water they will fight. When one is combing his hair you should not take the comb until he is finished if you do you will get a headache. If you see the plough star the first night of the new year you will have good luck for the year.
