Wild Bird In The House Means Death

Updated on March 2, 2015

My Grandma used to say that when a bird gets in your house it means someone living in that house will die soon.. She could usually predict who because she would have a dream of that person not being present at a big holiday dinner coming up. They'd die by then, she'd say, and sure enough she was right. Then one day a bird got in our house.

I was kind of scared. I told my friends all about it. I said maybe it would be my brother to die. They said, "No, no one will die. Birds get in our place all the time."

I said, "Better him than me."

Guess what? No one died. My friends were right.

R.I.P to all!

      I could be wrong, but I thought it depended on the type of bird. I grew up around superstition as well, and I'm pretty sure different birds mean different things. Also, the number of birds in the house makes a difference. Maybe in your case, it was a sign of good luck. Hope so!
