What signs should be remembered if the swallow has built a nest in the house or under the roof
If the swallows make their nests under our roof, this is lucky. In different traditions, swallows are represented as representatives of all the best, and carriers of evil forces. For example, in Irish superstitions, swallows are servants of elves who kidnap children.
Of course, the signs associated with the swallow in this case are devoid of cheerfulness, which is characteristic of the signs of the northern peoples.
But in one the signs converge — the swallows would never have started to build a nest in a bad place, next to bad people. In exchange for protection and shelter, they offer good luck, ease in affairs, happiness. But do not relax.
According to many signs, they just put down their vigilance in order to spot and kidnap your main treasure — beautiful children born in love, prosperity and joy. For the Slavic peoples and for Greece, swallows are sacred birds, bringing spring, joy and good luck.
