We all know death is inevitable, it’s no surprise and yet we are terrified of it. People often look for signs that the Grim Reaper is on his way. These omens may be crazy to you and for others you may embrace it. But I must say that if you do believe in all these you might not want to ever leave your home or even open your door. 🙂
According to folklore, if a mirror cracks, or suddenly falls and shatters, death may be near. This happened to my sister once, she was looking in a bathroom mirror and it suddenly cracked. Apparently that was just a joke from the Grim Reaper, because she is alive to this day. 🙂
Birds In The House
I’ve never heard of this one before. Legend has it if you open the door and a bird flies inside your home, the bird is warning you that the Grim Reaper is headed your way.
A white rabbit coming across your path is bad luck. In many cultures it is a warning that death is on it’s way. Two white rabbit means death in the family is coming, just not necessarily for you.

It is said that if an owl hoots right above your head, death is coming for you. Some cultures say that any owl hooting in your neighborhood in the dead of night is a sign of death and bad luck for someone nearby.

Crows have always had significant meaning to humans. One crow nearby is a bad luck omen. Two crows nearby means good luck is yet to come. Five crows means sickness is coming and six crows means DEATH!
It has been said that if you come across a funeral procession, you must turn and follow for at least four steps to avoid death yourself. Pay a little respect to the Grim Reaper and he will leave you alone…for now.
Black cats are always at the heart of superstitions and omens. It has been said that a black cat meowing in the middle of the night is warning all that death is coming. They also say that a black cat crossing a funeral procession is a sign that in three days a family member is going to die.
