Rabbits - A popular luck bringing superstition was to say White
Rabbits at the start of the first day of each month. Also, some people
would carry on them a rabbit’s foot, which was thought to bring them good
luck. Then, we are all familiar with the loveable Easter Bunny, who brings
all the children Easter Eggs. Rabbits were a symbol of fertility and with
the egg, it was thought to have magical powers. However, rabbits are not
native to Britain, but were introduced by the Normans – so the original
Easter Bunny would actually have been a hare.
Butterfly's - If a butterfly
was seen flying at a funeral it was thought to be the spirit of the person
being buried. Then if you find a butterfly in the house,
particularly in the winter, it was said to bring good luck. Also, if
seen in dreams, particularly brightly coloured ones, this was also thought
to be a good omen, and bring good fortune.
