I've been searching various databases for weeks, and so far I've come up zilch, so I would like to ask the Wikipedia community what they know about this subject:

I hear there's an old superstition among Asian and/or Latino communities that people used to view boy/girl fraternal twins as bad. Sometimes, the birthday of one of the twins is changed so that people wouldn't know that they were twins.

So far, I just have a few confirmations from international people, and I'm not quite sure if they're pulling my leg. Any references would be extremely helpful.

The term "aboriginal" is ambiguous, as it contains no intrinsic geographical context. If this refers to indigenous Australian mythology the article should be changed to reflect this accurately. --Basswaster (talk) 15:51, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Avoiding twin foods[edit]

The article states that Native Americans avoid eating twin foods such as almonds and bananas. But given that both are native to the Old World, these are post-Columbian adoptions and thus not exactly mythology. If there are credible examples of Native Americans avoiding twin foods that are from the Americas, then the avoidance would be more believable.
