Rain in October
Means wind in December.
When birds and badges are fat in October,
Expect a cold winter.
When berries are many in October
Beware a hard winter.
In October dung your fields
And your land its wealth shall yield.
If ducks do slide at Hallowtide,
At Christmas they will swim;
If ducks do swim at Hallowtide
At Christmas they will slide.
Always will there be
Twenty-nine fine days in October.
If the October-moon comes without frost
Expect no frost till the moon of November.
