Do any of you believe that if you sweep your floor at night, you are sweeping away lady luck from your house?

True or not.

Because in the past, most people used only oil lamps as their light source, you can't see much with that amount of light. If you sweep at night you might be sweeping your valuable belonging away (earrings, change, etc.)

Upon waking up in the morning, do not pick up the egg you have just fried and deposit it on top of your alarm clock. This will result in your neighbour's cat giving birth to conjoined twins.

I have never tried sleeping my floor at night. The orgin of lady luck is "Lady Luck is a personification of luck that is often involved in gambler's superstitions" (Lady Luck)
