Hat Placed On A Bed Hat Placed On A Casket

Hat Placed On A Bed Hat Placed On A Casket, In Portugal, a hat on a bed foretells a family argument; and when the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso one day saw a hat on his bed, he feared an enemy had placed it there to send him to an early grave. In the United States, rodeo riders fear a hat on a bed is an omen of injury or death.

The story behind this superstition may come from Italy, where Catholic priests up until a few decades ago always wore a distinctive small hat, which they never took off indoors. It was said the only time a priest took off his hat was to put on his vestments – and so a priests’ hat lying on a bed suggested a dying person was being given the Last Rights. Another story is that a hat on a bed evokes the armour of a fallen soldier placed atop a coffin, or the crown of a king placed on a tomb.
