Someone stepped on my grave

Posted by Barbara Farnan on October 09, 2001

I've heard this phrase used when someone involuntarily shudders throughout their body. Also, heard of it as "a rabbit jumped on my grave". Anyone know of it's origin. Taken literally, it must come from a religion believing in reincarnation.
