Eight superstitions about crows

If you're an animal lover and a lover of superstitions, then read on about some superstitions about crows. An animal that has been associated with death to just plain bad luck.

The crow is seen as an animal that is portrayed with the sign of death. Modern tale of the crow, comes from none other than a comic series and a movie, "The Crow."

This article after researching I found eight superstitions about this animal:

  • Seeing one crow means bad luck.
  • Seeing two crows means good luck.
  • If you see six, then that means death!
  • If you hear cawing in the distance, that means that death is very near.
  • If a crow is in your house, that means that you're going to get bad news.
  • Finding a dead crow on the road means good luck (how grotesque!)
  • Crows in a churchyard is a sign of bad luck.
  • Chinese folklore tells of a three legged crow that symbolizes the sun.

Obviously you can notice that the crow is a sign of bad luck according to superstitions. Just like the black cat, this black bird is a sign of uncertainly. Of course that is all superstition and the crow is actually quite a smart bird.
