I heard it tonight in nova scotia by my mother for the very first time, who said her mother said it when she was growing up! I HAD to google it! happy showers!
Well....living in southern Louisiana where the Cajuns came from Nova Scotia. This saying must have French Roots. I didn't hear this saying till I moved to southern louisiana.
Grandmother used to say this and her family dated back to the French Protestants who came to America to escape persecution.
I am from Texas and my grandparents are from Tennessee and I grew up hearing it from both of them.
