I recently came across the phrase " The Goose Hung High". I know it means that times are good, but I can't find anyone that knows, or any information on what it literally means. Can anyone help?

This expression is based on a superstition of that time. When geese flew low, it meant that evil spirits were present. When geese flew, or "hung," high in the sky, the evil spirits were gone, and all was well.
