Superstitions In Germany (Aging and Death)

-If a deathly ill person cannot die, then one should move the table out of its place, or turn over a shingle on the roof.

-If a sick man wishes to die, then one should open all the windows, fill any object in the house which is empty and turn it over, so that the soul is free to leave and cannot stay anywhere. One should also take the vinegar away, so that it does not sit around; hang the bird cage somewhere else, tie the cattle up differently, and move the beehives.

-If a deceased man's clothes are not soon washed, he cannot rest.

-If someone has trouble dying, then one may lift up just three tiles on the roof.
