THE LOAF OF lilt LAP.
SUPERSTITIONS OF MANY LANDS CON
Origin of the Signiog of the Crow —What
a Cr*« k Acrott* the Loaf Mwu»» —The Oven
a Sacred Ofcjjert —Omen* Kelatin* to
Birth, Marrlanjf :ind L>eath.
One morning last summer, when I
was sptmdiiig a few days at a farm
house in eastern Ohio, the good house
wife showed that she was troubled
Naturally I inquired the cause. "Oh,"
she said, "I'm afraid something dread
ful will happen. This morning I put a
batch of bread into the oven, and all the
loaves except one cracked across the
"What if they did?" I replied in
tones of curiosity.
"Don't yon know," she said, with an
air of surprise, "that when bread cracks
across the top it means misfortune to
some one in the family? I would not
have had it happen for the world."
As I left a few days after this mishap
to the bread I never learned whether the
sign was a true onaen or not. However,
the housewife had contributed to my
stock of information and had given me
an item of folk* at led to further
One of my German friends tella me
that in many parts of h < native country
the housewife still 1 .eves that cracks
on the top of the uf of bread indicate
the death of some one in the household,
or perhaps misfortune to a dear friend,
while cracks on the lower side of the
bread are taken to indicate a birth.
As many of us know, our bakers mark
the sign of a cross upon the dough be
fore placing it in the oven. The reason
for making this sign becomes plain
when we know the origin of the custom.
Almost all our superstitions about bread
date back to old pagan days, though
they have been greatly modified so as to
conform to Christian beliefs. With the
ancient Romans the baking of bread
and cakes was often invested with a re
ligions significance, especially the cakes
offered to the gods and goddesses. These
cakes were prepared in a particular way,
anil after being marked with the symbol
of the deity in whose honor they were
offered they were supposed to possess
The old domestic practice was modi
lied when Christianity became trium
phant, and in place of a pagan symbol
the early Christian housewife not only
used to make the sign of the cross when
she began to knead the dough, but sh«
marked that sign upon her loaf before
placing it in the oven. Why? Simply
because the sign of the cross is the rec
ognized Christian protecting mark
against the attacks of evil spirits, witches
and tho like. Henco bread marked with
the cross is supposed to bo witchproof,
will bake all right, not crack across the
Just as the Jews have passover cakes
and other peoples have had specially
prepared food for their religious festi
vals, so the Christians have cakes for
certain seasons. Our hot cross buns on
Good Friday are simply modern repre
sentatives of the cakes used at some old
pagan festival. In days gone by the
cakes and buns baked at Easter were
supposed to possess great virtues. Thus
it is an old belief that tho observance
of eating crass buns on Good Friday in
sures, so to speak, the house from firo
for the coming year.
In truth, to study tho superstitions
about bread is to take a. wide lesson in
folklore. These superstitions relate to
the kneading trough, the oven, bakers
and bread. For instance, in many parts
of France the arche, or kneading trough,
is more than a rudo kitchen utensil. It
is often a pretty bit of furniture. M.
Sebillot, who has collected many of the
auperntitioua of tlio Froucli folk relntivo
to bread, quotes the story of a thief who
entered tho window of a house with in
tent to commit burglary, but ri fused to
6tep on the trough still containing the
dough, believing that to do so would be
A writer in one of the recent num
bers of an English magazine says that
Li Gottlaud the cross is still signed bu
foro tilt' oven fire i- lighted or the dough
kneaded. This practice is very common
in the country districts all over Europe.
In Brittany the housewife makes the
sign of the cross with the right hand
while she places the left hand in the
trough. After the dough is kneaded, the
lid of the trough is shut, and s« is the
door, for if tho cat should enter the
room the bread would not rise. Certain
charms or invocations are used to cause
the bread to multiply itself. Thus the
peasant housewife adjures the dough to
imitate the leaven, the wheat the miller
and to rise. She would be very angry if
any one should sing or whistle in the
room while she is making the loaf.
In some parts of Europe the bake oveti
is alunist u object. In certain
places of Brittany, for example, it is
dedicated with ceremonies. The wood is
sprinkled with blessed water. The prop
er heat is attested by tho melting of u
bottle, and finally an egg is broken for
luck. Besides there are certain days on
which bread must not be baked, as on
Holy Friday or during tho night of All
Saints, when the ghosts would bo sure
to eat it.
Tho loaf of bread itself is connected
With a whole crowd of superstitions. A
longtime resident in France informs me
that the custom of marking the bread
with tho sign of the cross before cutting
It is very general. Sometimes the first
mouthful uf bread is used to make this
sign. According to an old English su
perstition, if a loaf accidentally parts in
the hand while an unmarried lady is
cutting it this may lie taken to indicate
either that she will not be married dur
ing the next 12 months, or, what is
worse, that there will be dissensions of
some kind in the family. Some folks
havo a fear of turning a loaf upside
down after cutting it. Of course it is
•everywhere regarded as bad luck for a
piece of bread to fall on tho buttered
