WHY GYPSIES MUST STEAL

AT THE SITE OF JESUS' CRUCIFIXION, THERE WERE GYPSIES ALL AROUND.

WHY PEACOCKS' FEATHERS HAVE AN EYE IN THEM.

DURING THE CRUCIFICTION, PEACOCKS WANDERED BELOW THE CROSS, PECKING
AT THE BODIES ON THE CROSSES. DROPS OF BLOOD FELL ON TO THEIR

CHRIST AND THE ROBINS

THE REASON ROBINS HAVE RED BREASTS ARE BECAUSE WHEN CHRIST WAS
DYING ON THE CROSS BIRDS SNUGGLED UP THEIR BREASTS TO CHRIST'S
WOUNDS, IN ORDER TO CATCH THE FLOWING BLOOD. IN RETURN FOR THEIR
GOOD DEED CHRIST GAVE THEM THEIR RED BREASTS IN RECOGNITION FOR
THEIR DEED.
