Subject: RE: Folklore: Good Luck for the New Year
isn't there some tradition about carrying bread, matches and salt
for good luck..maybe this is for a new house...?
these things are symbolic of something...the matches are for fire.
perhaps the bread is wealth, and the salt?
it seems those things went along with going in the front door
and out the back?
