Signs of Swerte

There are a number of Chinese who migrated and chose to live in the Philippines. There are also of Filipinos with Chinese blood. Chinese believe in luck and because they have been in the Philippines for a long time, they might have influenced the Filipinos. Most Filipinos believe in luck and some mix Filipino belief in it. Good luck is termed swerte and bad luck is malas. They say that if the right palm of one’s hand will become itchy, a swerte is about to come in relation to financial matters; the same thing if a brown butterfly will go inside and stay for a while in one of the walls of a house.
