So I get emails from SureBaby and this weeks' Fun Fact is this:

Rain on your wedding day may be a stroke of bad luck where you live, but it's quite the opposite in Malta. In fact, Maltese women pray for heavy rain when they exchange their vows, as a wet wedding is believed to forecast an easy first labor and childbirth. Couples go so far as to schedule their weddings on the days of "Stile", dates throughout the year that are associated with heavy rain.

 

Rained on our wedding day...had fast easy birth with DD.

How about you?

Here's hoping! It rained on our wedding night (we got married in the evening).

LOL! Beautiful sunny day when I got married - horribly long first labour.
