  1. No Birds in the House
    Italians often believe that having a bird in the house brings bad luck. I have heard this growing up and none of the older generations I knew to never had pet birds, but today many Italian American families have pet birds. Some versions of the superstition include even bird feathers, especially peacock feathers with their potentially "Evil" eye. I was told growing up that the reason for birds being bad luck stemmed from the Bible, when St. Peter denied that he knew Jesus three times before the cock crowed.
    A peacock feather has an evil eye at the end. Argus, the Greek legend, says a hundred eyed monster was turned into a peacock with all its eyes in its tail. Never bring a peacock feather indoors for decoration as they are unlucky.

  2. Its applicable to Christian or western belief. Not applicable here in India. Our supreme deity, Krishna was surrounded by peacocks.Wore peacock feather on His head. Similarly, many other deities are related to peacocks. Now, please, donot co relate Hinduism with Christianity. Hinduism is a different genre entirely. Lets respect the vast diversity and philosophy that different culture holds, rather than prejudicing! Thanks!

  3. I have read somewhere that during Krishna's childhood times, there was a superstition that peacock feathers are unlucky. And the Lord, as always, losing no opportunity to break down human delusions, picked up a peacock feather and stuck it into his own crown. Ever since then, we have come to venerate the blessed peacock feather that got exalted to the position of being part of the Lord's playful self-beautifying!
