If the first person to enter your house on New Year's day is a
woman then you'll have good luck. If it is a man you will have
bad luck.

Submitter comment: This was taken from a bible story about a man who asked god
for something and he was told if his wish was granted he would
have to kill the next person who came through the door. He agreed
and his wish was granted. The next person that walked through his
door was his daughter and he had promised god so he killed her.
