In England, people believed that the meteor shower predicted The Plague and the Great Fire in London.

Pawnee and Yolngu tribe believe that the meteors are souls that are going by and reincarnating while those in Ancient Greece often believed that the gods were opening the sky to watch the people on earth and would wish on them.
