Look what I found in today's paper. Can you believe it? They think twins are bad luck! (Remember to click on the pic to enlarge it an be able to read the article.)
When I was pregnant with The Boys I received a huge gift for the twins from a Chinese client. Apparently twins are good luck in China and a big gift is totally appropriate. Do you know of any other cultural believes regarding twins?
Edited to add: My hubby tells me that in the San (bushman) culture in the Kalahari desert the weaker one of twins was left to die in the dunes as the moms did not have enough milk to support two babies.
