There is a lot of lore and superstition surrounding the New Year. What follows is an extensive listing of what NOT to do, and what to avoid at all costs on this most powerful day of the year:
New Year's day was one of ill omen to the ancient Egyptians.
It is unlucky to have clothes hanging on the line when the New Year is born.
If a person in deep mourning pays you a call on New Year's day, a member of your family will die before the year is out....
I am so sorry to do this to you, but this post has been moved to my new website, The Pagan Calendar, hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com, and can be found in its entirety here: New Year's Day - The Do Nots
As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.
