: To have your feet brushed
by a broom, would cause you to go to jail??
: If a broom falls over, saying that you will never remarry???
: Would like to find out more of this broom talk of the past
Re the falling broom and remarriage, though I've never heard of this observation, this must be in some way connected with the old custom of jumping over a broom hand-in-hand with one's intended, an act which signified marriage... mustn't it?
