The Spider and the Pope. The Spider and the Pope.

Hi ho the derry-o
The spider and the pope

Notwithstanding this recent video of the spider and the pope [sic], here are some common superstitions about spiders.

  1. If you see a spider climbing the wall you will have your dearest wish come true.

  2. If you see a spider spinning a web you will have an increase in your income due to hard work.

  3. When spiders spin their webs 'fore noon,
    Sunny weather's coming soon.

  4. When a spider is found upon our clothes, some money is coming towards us.

  5. A spider descending upon you from the roof is a token that you will soon have legacy from a friend.

  6. If a spider builds its web across your door, you can expect company.

  7. If you walk into a spider web, you will meet a friend that day.

  8. When a man fyndeth a spyder upon his gowne it is a synge to be that daye ryght happye.

  9. Kill a spider, bad luck yours will be
    Until of flies you've swatted fifty-three.

Notwithstanding the first eight misconceptions - too bad the pope [sic] didn't notice the intrusion and swat it off his lovely white gown.
