Mother Goose said to the Shochet, " Eat your heart out, you can't touch me for
the next two months, unless you, eat my heart."
*Shulchan Aruch Y.D. 11:4 The Rema writes, " Some Shochtim have the Minhag
not to shecht any geese in the months of Teves & Shevat.
There is a Kabalah, that there is a certain hour in these two months, if a person
shechts a goose, he dies, unless he eats its heart."
