NAME

Date::DayOfWeek::Nails - Cut your nails on a Friday, cut them for woe ...

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Date::DayOfWeek::Nails;
    $advice = nails( 25, 10, 1971 ); # day month year



DESCRIPTION



 Cut your nails on a Monday, cut them for news.
 Cut your nails on a Tuesday, a new pair of shoes.
 Cut your nails on a Wednesday, cut them for health.
 Cut your nails on a Thursday, cut them for wealth.
 Cut your nails on a Friday, cut them for woe.
 Cut your nails on a Saturday, a journey to go.
 Cut your nails on a Sunday, you cut them for evil,
 For all the next week youll be ruled by the devil.



Yes, this is strange. And I’m looking for the source of these beliefs. I think I probably have to read a few more chapters. But this amused me, so here it is.

The reference for this is The Oxford Companion to the Year, however, it does not say exactly where this rhyme comes from.
