It is said that the kind of bird a girl watches on Valentine's Day predicts her future husband. For
instance:
Sparrow: a poor man
Owl: remain spinster
Bluebird: a happy man
Blackbird: a priest or clergyman
Crossbill: an argumentative man
If an apple is cut in half, the number of seeds found inside the fruit will indicate the number of
children that individual will have.
To be awoken by a kiss on Valentine's Day is considered lucky.
On Valentine's Day, the first guy's name you read in the paper or hear on the TV or radio will be the
name of the man you will marry.
If you see a squirrel on Valentine's Day, you will marry a cheapskate who will hoard all your money.
If you see a goldfinch on Valentine's Day, you will marry a millionaire.
If you see a robin on Valentine's Day, you will marry a crime fighter - maybe they mean Batman!
If you see a flock of doves on Valentine's Day, you will have a happy, peaceful marriage.
If you find a glove on the road on Valentine's Day, your future beloved will have the other missing
glove.

necessary? Or are disassociations necessary in
order to find one’s Self?
