Each of us must have heard of people who escaped from misfortune, being in the balance of death. Fate saved many of them more than once, as if they had pulled out a lucky ticket. These minions of fortune evil rock as if bypasses. Today we will talk about those who are lucky literally from the moment of birth.
What does the expression “born in a shirt” mean?
This statement has become a symbol of incredible luck. So they say about people who miraculously escaped death or various major troubles . The shirt as an item of clothing has absolutely nothing to do with it, it only serves as an expressive image. The history of her choice as an example of a successful fate goes back to the distant past.
Where did this expression come from?
Nowadays, giving birth “in a shirt” is not considered a sure sign of a happy and successful life. Now this common phraseology is applicable to all people whom the fortunate accident saved from certain death . Often, a catch phrase is used in relation to adventurers and adventurers who knowingly take risks.
Reference! It is worth saying that initially the expression sounded like "born in a shirt." The bladder was called a shirt much later.
The magical meaning of the proverb
By the way! There have been cases when the fetal bladder remained on the baby's head. Such children were called "born in a cap."
We humans are always inclined to believe in miracles. We are always waiting for the moment when fortune knocks on our door. We are looking for different ways to attract good luck.
Interesting! There was a belief that a person is lucky, while his native shirt is kept intact. Her destruction meant the end of luck. Therefore, the mothers kept the film coating of the child in a safe place inaccessible to the prying eyes. Often it is rolled up into the ground when folded, and for better storage it was pre-dried in the sun. If after drying the shirt acquired a reddish tint, then this meant that a happy and long life awaits the child. Black color meant trouble.
What does science say?
However, scientists are talking about other properties of the ovarian bladder that are more useful for society: it has a rejuvenating effect and can be used as a component in the production of cosmetics . And also his artificial “clone” can be effectively used in medicine. With it, you can save the lives of babies born long before the deadline prescribed by the doctor. Toddlers are placed in their natural environment and lie there until they get stronger.
A completely different matter! This is real, measurable and tangible success, isn't it?
