A Cock Crowing In The Night






Category: DEATH PORTENTS.

Source: Welsh Folk-lore

This, too, was thought to foretell a death, but whose death, depended on
the direction of the bird's head whilst crowing. As soon as the crowing
was heard someone went to ascertain the position of the cock's head, and
when it was seen that his head was turned from their own house towards
someone else's abode, the dwellers in that house slept in peace,
believing that a neighbour, and not one of themselves, was about to die.
It was supposed, that to make the prognostication sure, the cock would
have to crow three times in succession before or about midnight, and in
the same direction.
