Squeaking in with today’s Folktale Week theme: Moon.
I’ve been wanting to participate in this one for ages! I really wanted to do Canadian folk tales, stories, and anecdotes, and actually found a book full of them! So this one is a combination of Nova Scotian superstitions, with origins in French & Irish folklore.
It is said that any wish you made the first time you saw the new moon, it was sure to come true, provided you had something in your hand at the time you saw it.
Also, to see the moon over your left shoulder was bad luck, to see it over your right, good luck.
