The bird flew through the window — a sign of a blue-wing and not only …
Among the common folk will take about birds, there is a scary, not versed in the inhabitants of the inhabitants of their meaning. As if a pigeon that flew through the window foretells death. It’s time to figure out how correct the interpretation is and whether the birds really predict fate.
Numerous beliefs about birds are passed down from generation to generation, experiencing transformations, additions and extensions of interpretation versions. Turning to the origins of the pagan and Slavic beliefs, one can understand that for our ancestors the birds were the personification of spirits, a hypostasis in which a deity could appear to people.
Later, when the suppositions of the pagans about the existence of gods in each animate and inanimate object were supplanted by the Christian religion, the people put forward a different version of the magical function of winged friends. They began to be considered a link between the otherworldly, living, and now existing world.
It was taken for granted that the soul of a deceased relative could dwell in the little conqueror of heaven for a short time in order to carry some important news. For example, to warn about future changes, the imminent death or serious illness of someone from the family.

Then the inhabitants of the house threatened in the near future imminent danger.
- A swallow who has flown into a house through a door or other doorway can, with its interpretation, please the owners. Soon, one of the households will strengthen the legal bond of marriage with the second half. But if there are happy spouses in the house and there is no one suitable for a quick marriage, do not worry. Pointed baby just brought prosperity and happiness. Or maybe the swallow flew into the window by accident, a sign that could be mistaken.
