Rain, Rain Don't go Away
I heard a new "folk belief" today. I mentioned that I was thankful that it had finally stopped raining, although the weather forecast showed rain as a possibility for Friday. The person I mentioned this to smiled and said: "Oh good, rain on Friday night is always mazeldik for the Jews." Huh? Is there any possible real grounding for this belief, or is this another one of those "Everyone knows" but nobody knows how this came to be sayings? Inquiring minds want to know.
