Pennsylvania Dutch Pow Wow – Unlucky Days

According to the tradition of the Pennsylvania Dutch, and the book: Pow-Wows, or Long Lost Friend, by John George Hoffman, the following are the unlucky days:

Whoever is born upon one of these days is unfortunate and suffers much poverty; and whoever takes sick on one of these days seldom recovers health; and those who engage or marry on these days become very poor and miserable. Neither is it advisable to move from one house to another, nor to travel, nor to bargain, nor to engage in a lawsuit, on one of these days.

  • January: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 11, 12.
  • February: 1, 17, 18.
  • March: 14,16.
  • April: 10, 17, 18.
  • May; 7, 8.
  • June; 17.
  • July; 17, 21.
  • August; 20, 21.
  • September; 10, 18.
  • October; 6.
  • November: 6, 10.
  • December: 6, 11, 15.

He goes on to say:

The Signs of the Zodiac must be observed by the course of the moon, as they are daily given in common almanacs.

If a cow calves in the sign of the Virgin, the calf will not live one year; if it happens in the Scorpion, it will die much sooner; therefore no one should be weaned off in these signs, nor in the sign of the Capricorn or Aquarius, and they will be in less danger from mortal inflammation.
