  • HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING, "IF IT RAINS ON EASTER IT WILL RAIN 7 SUNDAYS STRIGHT?
    I have been told for many years (I'm 61) that if it rains on Easter it will rain for seven Sundays straight.
    And it actually is pretty accurate. Has anyone ever heard that. I'm not sure where it came from but was just curious if others have heard this.
    Hugs from Sw Penna. A very special Easter Blessing to you and your families. Easter and Christmas are the two most wonderful holidays. The birth of our savior and His resurection. We serve a Living God.
    PTL!

    I have heard many things about the weather but not that one. I'll have to do my own empirical test of it.

    Where are you from in SW Pa? I am in Pittsburgh currently but I grew up in Westmoreland county.

    I am about 30 miles south of Pittsburgh in Claysville. If you are familiar with little Washington I am about 20 minutes from there. God Bless!

  • RE: HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING,
    I don't know Little Washington or Claysville.

    My youngest daughter is in college at Washington & Jefferson in Washington, PA. Are you near there?
    False
  • RE: HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING,
    Yes, some people refer Washington, Pa as little Washington. I used to work in Washington, I shop there, see my doctor there, etc. How does she like W & J? I hope we have been friendly to her.

    Easter is my favorite holiday!

    My grandmother always told us that, and it always held true, and my dad just brought the topic up yesterday when we were talking as rain is predicted here for Easter.

    Grayhound, my aunt and uncle lived in Little Washington on Chestnut St. This was way back in the 50's and 60's. The train tracks were in their backyard, we loved to sit out there and watch the trains. Thanks for the memory, haven't heard it called Little Washington in years!

  • RE: HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING,
    Never heard of this before, but will watch for it!
    False
  • RE: HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING,
    Yes, I've heard that for years and it usually is true. Might not rain a lot, but will rain sometime on Sunday.
    So many of those old sayings are true and this is one of them.
    False
  • RE: HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING,
    no, I've never heard that one. maybe because here in California we never, ever get that much rain. Cali

  • RE: HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING,
    I heard a different version that if it rains on a Sunday, it will rain 7 Sundays in a row - and that usually holds true, too. (BTW I live in Pittsburgh).

    A few years ago, I was living in the high desert of California and we got snow on Easter...how does that affect the old saying? LOL
    False
  • RE: HAVE YOU HEARD THE OLD SAYING,
    It's funny that you would mention snow. Around us we always say that winter isn't over until we have our Easter storm. LOL!
