My grandparents originated in Poland and Belarus but I never heard of =
the keys and birds superstitions. Re fear of death - they would never =
place beds facing the door - (to make it harder to carry you out!)

Two things I do remember well are connected to Havdallah- it was =
forbidden for women and girls to drink the wine - if we did, we'd grow a =
beard, and if we didn't hold the Havdallah candle high enough we'd have =
a midget for a husband.=20
