The meaning of the date of your death

I have heard that if you die on certain days it means something. For example, I have heard that if you died on your birthday there is a significance to that.

Does anyone know all the days and what they mean? My grandma died on my grandpa’s birthday and I was wondering if there was any meaning to that.

This sounds very superstitious and should be avoided. To infer certain ideas simply based on the relationship of the date of death to other dates in the personal life of the deceased sounds a lot like astrology and other types of divinization.

Stay grounded in Christ, our only true hope. :thumbsup:

I think that it means that some people are superstitious. Besides, what does it have to do with traditional catholicism?

I know someone born on December 25…does that make them Christ???

Its superstitious nonsense and doesn’t mean anything. Ignore it.
Dwelling on things like this can cause you to sin. Superstition is a grave sin against the 1st Commandment.

I’m not necessarily sure, but I heard a similar superstition-- that people usually die within three months revolving around your own birthday.

If you really think it’s significant, try looking it up. :slight_smile:

Ironically Yours, Blade and Blood

Well, three months in either direction of your birthday would be six months, which is half of the year. So, yes, there is a 50/50 chance that people would die within three months revolving around your own birthday. Don’t think that is significant in any way except, perhaps, statistically . . .

I don’t know if there’s any deep significance to it, but I know of a man who was very devoted to Mary, and he died on August 15th. I just think that happens to be very sweet. I don’t know if it means anything. But I won’t count anything out. After all, Jesus decided to die on a very interesting day-Passover-and that obviously had meaning. But I suppose this is not really very relevant to my personal spiritual life, so I don’t much care when I die.

This reminds me of a story I was told about my grandfather. He was always a drinker, and a “bummer” of money, and if anyone ever went back to him to try to get his “loan” back, his famous retort was, “See me August 12th”.

He died at the age of 69, on – you guessed it – August 12th.

(and no, there was no foul play involved in his death).

If the day of your death means anything, I’d say it’s the day you enter the next life.
Say hi to my grandpa!

There’s an old superstition that supposedly, a person born on December 25th would be cursed and become a werewolf. Granted, there’s an odd and fortunately rare pyschological condition that causes the sufferer to act aggressive and agitated around the time of the full moon, but I don’t recall it being documented that the people who have it were born on Dec. 25th…

It means that you are dead.:wink:
