It is a persistent superstition in many cultures that moths should not be killed and represent a dead relative visiting or some variation on this theme. Last night at dinner a moth came and landed on the table between my friend and I. I told her the superstition and everyone at the table stopped and looked at the moth. To our suprise, it promptly flew to the edge of the candel on our table and dove into the hot wax.
