Hair And Birds In New Orleans

“It is dangerous to throw hair-combings away instead of burning them, because birds may weave them into their nests and while the nest remains the person to whom the hair belonged will have a continual headache.”

Lafcadio Hearn, “New Orleans Superstitions” Harper’s Weekly, 25 December 1886
