Can you bury St. Francis?

I am wondering about St. Francis! When selling a house I understand you can bury him! What I am not sure of is how. Do you bury his head in the direction you are moving to? Or his feet? Do you bury him on his stomach or his back?

The saint you are looking for is St. Joseph. The main thing to remember if you are going to bury a statue of St. Joseph is that you not do so in a superstitious fashion. Scrupling over which way to point his feet and whether to bury him on his stomach or back is superstitious.
