THE DEVIL AND THE BLACKBERRIES

Here's some blackberries for yah! These wild blackberries grow everywhere in our backyard. I tried to eat it one time, but it wasn't that good. I much prefer the ones in the store....lol!

THE DEVIL AND THE BLACKBERRIES
English Legend

The English tale you never to eat blackberries after early autumn. Here’s why: When the Devil was kicked out of Heaven on October 11, he landed, cursing and screaming, on a thorny blackberry bush.

He avenges himself on the same day every year by spitting on the berries, which makes them inedible. (Some people say he pees on the blackberries!) He avenges himself on the same day every year by peeing on the berries, which makes them unfit for human consumption.

Makahinumdum mn sd ko nku ana, kada adto nmu sa park naa mn sd mga devil berries tubo ngadto, akong bana dili ko buhian ky magpataka daw ug hungit sa baba mura ug bata, basin daw makahilo. wala lng siya kabalo nga tilawan tanan fruit trees manubo sa atong bukid, basta lami makaon na heheheheehe. Gwapa ra tan awon ang berries but they dont taste good. Maayo pa ang lanzones sa camiguin, ug nangka ug mga fruits sa atong bukid tsang.
