Why are Haitians so affraid of this Butterfly?

What is it with Haitians and Butterflies? -- My wife woke up this morning to go to the gym, she spotted a big brown butterfly at the gate. She rushes back and asks me to come outside and open the gate... LOL...

A Butterly in Haiti

"Why?" I asked. "Just open the gate!"

"There is a big butterfly right at the gate where I have to hold to open it," she said. "come open it for me."

"Just shake the gate it will fly away," I replied.

Long story short... I had to get out of bed just to go outside and open the gate just because there is a butterfly on it.

"I am not affraid," she said, "I am sure it bring good luck!"

Yeah right... It bring so much good luck that I have to be the one benefits from all that good luck... SMH!
