It is unlucky for a traveler on Monday morning to meet a man with shloof, or flat feet, but mischief may be averted by returning home, eating and drinking, and starting afresh on ones way.
-- William Hendersons Folk-lore of the Northern Counties of England, 1879
Feast Day of St. Gertrude of Nivelles
Troubled travelers prayed to this seventh-century saint as did newly deceased souls, whom, it was believed in medieval times, she shepherded on their three-day voyage to the next world. A list of things evil for the heart from the Shepherds Kalender (1604) included beans, peas, leeks, garlic, onions
too much business, [and] travel.
Never meddle in the affairs of dragons;
For you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
