What is the old wives' tale about itchy palms?

Answer

The old wives' tale concerning itchy palms means that the individual who experiences it will be coming into money soon. There is distinction between the left and right palm.

Though this is only a superstition, it has been around for a long time and many individuals still pass the information along to their children.
