I was told, you salute a lone magpie, a pair is not considered a problem in the U.K., anybody disagree or agree as I'm not one hundred per cent sure.

Regarding Magpies the rhyme goes 1 for sorrow, 2 for joy, 3 for a girl, 4 for a boy, 5 a letter, 6 something better, 7 is ?, 8 is a secret never to be told.

On the first of May every year in Manchester, England we danced around a maypole and all the children wore their best new clothes and went door to door for praise and money for looking good...strange but true.

I GUESS AUSTRALIA HAS MANY USUAL RITUALS BUT NOTHING REALLY WEIRD THAT I KNOW OF. I DON'T PARTICULARLY LIKE RITUALS, PREFER TO BE NATURAL. I HAVE HEAPS OF MAGPIES RUNNING ON MY LAWN. I DO TALK TO THEM OF COURSE. THEY ARE ALL MY FRIENDS.
